Together We Can Make a Better Community

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world.” – Margaret Mead

There is no question that volunteering strengthens communities. Back in 1979, that was precisely what families in Geauga County did for women who suffered from abuse perpetrated by their husbands and boyfriends. Women in our community graciously opened their doors to neighbors in need of emergency shelter. From this generosity stemmed WomenSafe, a safe haven for victims of domestic violence. Today, WomenSafe continues to rely on the volunteer efforts of many dedicated individuals.

WomenSafe, Inc. is always in need of more volunteers to provide clerical assistance, support our clients, help plan fundraisers, run the Resale Shoppe, maintain the shelter, organize donations, and do much more. Our volunteer program is flexible and fun! There are opportunities to volunteer from home, as a family and at the convenience of your individual schedule. If you are looking for an opportunity to give some of your time to a good cause and like to help people, consider volunteering at WomenSafe!
