Get Involved

We are looking for volunteers to help support our program. Volunteers support our social workers and clients in so many ways. They accompany social workers doing street and van outreach, help in our community kitchen, take our clients on recreational outings, and help with special events. If you have the time, skills, passion, and a commitment to helping women – please apply today.


DAMS is always looking for volunteers to assist with and enrich our programs, including:
