Join the PADV Team! 

As a nonprofit organization, PADV's body of staff is lean so that most of our resources can be devoted to the programs and services we provide to those in need. Therefore, volunteers are a significant asset to the advancement of our mission. Our volunteer program meets the needs of our agency and is flexible enough to meet the needs of today’s volunteer as well with multiple roles, locations and shifts to choose from. Check out the basic qualifications below.

Volunteer Qualifications

Though we would love the chance to work with everyone who is interested in lending PADV a hand, there are some qualifications that each volunteer must meet:

  • Shelter volunteers must be 18 years old or older. Due to state regulations, we are not allowed to have minors volunteer or accompany volunteers in our shelters.
  • If you are a survivor of intimate partner violence (IPV) or have experienced a loss due to IPV, we ask that you wait a minimum of 12 months before volunteering as a direct service volunteer.
  • Our volunteer opportunities are NOT available for those looking to complete court-ordered community service.


Do you meet each one of the aforementioned qualifications?  If so, click one of the options below to get started as a PADV volunteer. We look forward to working with you!
