Volunteers are always needed to support the Domestic and Sexual Violence efforts in Fairfax County. OWDSVS welcomes volunteers to work in a variety of jobs. Some examples include staffing our 24-hour hotline, facilitating support and psychoeducational groups, providing accompaniment for victims at the hospital or in court, assisting in prevention and educational outreach, providing administrative support, and many others. All volunteers must pass a background check. OWDSVS will provide all the training you need to safely and competently perform any of these jobs. If you would like more information, email Debra Ranf or call 703-324-9496. Learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Office for Women & Domestic and Sexual Violence Services (OWDSVS).
