Join the PADV Team!
Become an advocate for domestic violence survivors and their children. PADV recognizes the contribution that volunteers make to the success of our agency. With the assistance of dedicated volunteers, we are able to continue our mission of ending the crime of intimate partner violence and empowering its survivors. PADV utilizes volunteers in a variety of positions and has created a program that not only meets the needs of our agency, but also is flexible enough to meet the needs of today’s volunteer. As we operate safe houses in both Fulton and Gwinnett counties, we are able to work with each volunteer to find the placement location that is most convenient. Additionally, with evening and weekend opportunities available, we are flexible enough for the traditional work schedule.
- All 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 the shelters.
- Many PADV volunteers are survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV). However, if you are a survivor of 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 with PADV.
- In order to maintain continuity of service and effective communication, we prefer that shelter volunteers sign up for an average of a minimum of four hours per month.
- Volunteering opportunities at PADV are NOT available for those who are looking to fulfill court-ordered community service requirements.
