Volunteers and interns are a very important part of our organization. CornerHouse’s volunteers help fulfill the mission—to listen and offer hope and healing to those silenced by trauma and violence. You can make a difference in the community by becoming an integral part of the important work that we do.

“From the moment I entered CornerHouse, I knew it was a place I wanted to spend time as a volunteer. I was greeted by everyone I met with such warmth and friendliness that I immediately felt welcome and that as a volunteer, my time spent there would be valued. As I toured the facility I was struck by what a calm and inviting place it was, particularly for a child of any age involved in a difficult and stressful situation.”
“All the previous experience I had, in terms of work in the community, had been centered on children who function in what would be their normal capacity with little attention to violence in the home. CornerHouse’s mission statement spoke volumes in terms of their position as a child advocate and standing to protect children and vulnerable adults. Their approach to sexual violence and the services they offer were what attracted me to the site.”
