As the Volunteer Coordinator VISTA member at Peace at Home
Family Shelter, you will help end poverty by improving Peace at
Home's capacity to provide life-saving shelter and supportive
services to victims of domestic violence fleeing abuse and their
children. Each year, Peace at Home works with over 1,000
individuals in our community, providing emergency shelter, crisis
hotline, legal representation, housing assistance, counseling
services, support groups, and children's programs to help people
flee domestic violence and build new, stable lives. You will help
by increasing the capacity of Peace at Home Family Shelter to
provide quality services to victims of domestic violence fleeing
abuse and rebuilding their lives by implementing and managing a
volunteerism program within the organization. Specifically, your
work will focus on surveying staff members on potential volunteer
roles, updating volunteer procedures, trainings, and schedules, and
actively recruiting and managing volunteers. You will also
collaborate with Peace at Home staff and other VISTA members to
identify volunteer opportunities and how to communicate those
opportunities to the larger community. This VISTA will have the
opportunity to work with seasoned nonprofit administrators and
program personnel and network with other nonprofits and community
partners. A great opportunity for a strong communicator interested
in community service, nonprofit administration, and social justice.
The applicant should hold a 4-year degree in a related field or
have 4 years' experience in a similar field of work. Applicants

have strong writing skills, and have a passion for helping
survivors of domestic violence. This position will have the
