Join us to make a difference

ATTENTION: Sanctuary for Families is committed to the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers. In an effort to minimize contact within our broader Sanctuary Community, we are on-boarding a limited number of new volunteers and accepting a limited amount of in-kind donations. Please view our webpage here for a full updates on Sanctuary for Families response regarding COVID-19.

Volunteers are essential to our ability to provide high-quality personalized care to survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Most volunteer opportunities take place Monday-Friday (typically between 10am-8pm) at one of Sanctuary’s locations in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens.

The most common volunteer opportunities at Sanctuary are listed below; however, other opportunities do exist on an as-needed basis.
