Give Time

Jenesse Center, Inc. has worked for more than 30 years to help families who are victims of domestic violence move through their immediate crisis and end the cycle of violence in their lives through self-empowerment and self-sufficiency.

Our volunteers have been a large part of our success.

We are so excited that you want to join us in this amazing work — either by participating in one of our Days of Service or possibly working directly with clients, for example as an Education and Program Facilitator. We are looking for compassionate and hardworking people who want to make a positive change in the lives of our families anyway they can.

Thank you for wanting to join Jenesse in healing families and helping communities!

Volunteer Opportunities

Day of Service

Jenesse Center operates six facilities where families live, receive counseling, have educational classes/ life skills training and obtain legal assistance.

Volunteers are always needed to help maintain our facilities with landscaping, painting and organization of our boutiques and warehouses.


If you are a member of a corporation or an organization and would like to setup a special group project with your employees or members please Contact Us for a date.

Education and Program Facilitator

Jenesse Center, Inc. is more than a shelter. We are a comprehensive domestic violence intervention program with a strong education component that is focused on ensuring that our clients become self-sufficient. This is why clients are in class at our Education Center from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

Jenesse is always looking for dynamic facilitators to teach classes on a variety of subjects in ways that empower, educate and motive.
