Legal Aid Volunteer  Accompany a client to the courthouse to support her through the legal process. This is an on call position.

Crisis (phone) Line Coverage Answer the phone for staff and perform other clerical support work at the shelter. Afternoon, evening and weekend help is most needed.

Transportation Provider When no public means of transportation is available, volunteers take shelter residents to and from important appointments. Most destinations are in Sheboygan County.

Groundskeeper/Maintenance/Handyman All the tasks that support the operation of a large home need to be done year round at the shelter. Examples are yard work, snow shoveling, fix-it work and carpentry tasks. Great for a team of workers looking for an occasional project.

Cleaning Volunteer Assist with seasonal or occasional cleaning projects for the public rooms at the shelter. This is a great opportunity for a church or service group.

Administrative Support  Assist with bulk mailings and other projects.

Special Events Volunteer  Each year Safe Harbor benefits from fundraisers conducted on our behalf by groups and organizations. Often there is a need for volunteers to work at the fundraisers. You can help Safe Harbor–and have a good time–by volunteering for one of these events:

Men Who Cook for Safe Harbor Safe Harbor’s own event, held in February.  Amateur chefs from around the county cook up their favorite recipe for sampling.
