How you can help

Volunteers are a vital part of day to day operations at Harmony House. By supporting our staff, volunteers help us provide higher quality services to the survivors of Domestic Violence that we serve.

Volunteer opportunities are available in many areas and skill levels. Some need little or no experience, while others require a training program provided free of charge.
