There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. We depend on individuals and groups in the community to help provide services to the many survivors of family and sexual violence. If you have any questions about the volunteer process, please contact our Volunteer Services by

If you are interested in volunteering with Hope Alliance, please complete the volunteer application and bring it with you to a Volunteer Orientation Session. We ask for a contribution of $15.00 when you submit your application, to help cover program expenses such as background checks and training materials. The $15 is not a requirement to volunteer. Your contribution to support our volunteer program is greatly appreciated.
Attending the Volunteer Orientation Sessions is a chance for you to get to know our agency and explore your options as a volunteer. To attend, you must RSVP with our Volunteer Services by
e-mail or phone 512-255-1212. We can then provide you with more details about the meeting location and application process.

All dates are on Wednesday, 6pm-7:30pm
