Volunteer Kindness



Volunteerism and acts of kindness go hand in hand by making a positive impact on communities, reaching every corner of our world. For those served by Rose Brooks Center, that means providing care, services, and items needed by families as they navigate their new lives away from violence. We count on over 1,000 volunteers each year to help support our mission. Options offer a variety of program-related opportunities, as well as projects ideal for companies, social groups, faith communities, and individuals who want to get involved.

Volunteers play a healing role in promoting well-being, and because of that we are very thankful for their volunteer kindness. If you would like to learn more about volunteerism, reach out to us online or contact our Director of Volunteers and Community Engagement, Kim Barnes, at kimb@rosebrooks.org.
