Shelter volunteers provide the much-needed love, care and support to trafficking survivors at both shelters. 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hopefully working together in supporting the awareness and identification of human trafficking in our neighborhoods.
