Volunteers are an integral part of our team! Together with the volunteers, we work to create a supportive and trauma-informed environment for the residents at The Cridge Transition House for Women.
The volunteer tasks may include:

- Organizing and cleaning spaces;

Volunteers are usually assigned a specific role, for example, a baking or childcare volunteer. However, due to the changing and flexible nature of The Cridge Transition House, volunteers may engage in various tasks. Therefore, we ask that volunteers commit to a 2-4 hour volunteer shift, once per week (days and times can be negotiated) for 3-6 months. Volunteer orientation includes in-person role-specific training and online training on domestic violence and trauma-informed interactions (with residents).
