Freedom House needs compassionate and dedicated individuals to join in our mission to empower human trafficking survivors of all ages. Become a Freedom House volunteer by attending one of our upcoming volunteer training courses. It’s the perfect opportunity to get involved, whether you want to be a shelter volunteer to make a direct impact on our residents at The Monarch or an advocate volunteer to raise awareness about our cause.

Shelter Volunteers

Shelter Volunteer

Shelter volunteers provide the much-needed love, care and support to trafficking survivors at The Monarch. Volunteers assist with family dinners, parties, arts and crafts, tutoring sessions, and educational and recreational outings after completing the required 40-hour training. To be considered for a shelter volunteer position, candidates must submit a completed volunteer application packet. Upon review, finalists will be invited for an in-person interview and to present a LiveScan background check. For information, contact Tina at

Advocate Volunteers

Become a Advocate Volunteer

Help raise awareness about human trafficking and get the word out about Freedom House. Advocate volunteers represent our organization at different events through speaking engagements and tabling opportunities. It’s a great way to connect with other abolitionists throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. If you would like to learn more about human-trafficking and the pioneering Freedom House model, please email Tina at We look forward to hopefully working together in supporting the awareness and identification of human trafficking in our neighborhoods.

We’ve been encouraged and blessed to see the faith community coming together around our cause. Here are some ways to get your church involved. Contact for more information.

Give to our cause

Advocate for your church to become a Freedom House Partner to support our ministry through financial contribution, volunteer support, and prayer. We greatly appreciate the monthly financial support of our partners, which helps to fund the operation of our safe home and program.

Put on a benefit

Put your event planning skills to use for a good cause! Our volunteers have organized events such as freedom walk-a-thon, Free2Laugh comedy night, and benefit art show. You can organize a jewelry party, selling pieces made by Freedom House residents, or a housewarming party to collect much-needed items for our shelter.

Invite a speaker

We’d love to have a Freedom House representative come share about human trafficking and the work Freedom House does with your congregation. This can be at a conference, church service, small group, or other setting. Freedom House can also host a table at a gathering or event.

Mobilize volunteers

Volunteering is a great way for members of the church to get involved on a deeper level. We offer volunteer trainings for anyone interested in becoming a shelter volunteer (to provide direct support to the residents of Freedom House) or an advocate volunteer (to help raise awareness about the issue and connect people to our cause).

Pray for the ministry

We ask our prayer warrior partners to lift up Freedom House in their prayers. Please pray for the protection of the home, the residents, staff, and volunteers. Together we pray for freedom, healing, and hope in Christ for survivors of human trafficking.
