Bay Area Turning Point, Inc. Volunteer Requirements
At BATP, we invite the community to participate with us in stopping violence. The act of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking is a community problem and requires a community response. It is the rich partnerships with individuals and community organizations that allow us to do the monumental work before us each day. We have opportunities for a vast array of volunteers including but not limited to administrative support, housekeeping, special projects, food services, childcare, crisis hotline support, grounds keeping and fundraising activities. Please click the application and sign up for orientation that fits your schedule. We look forward to meeting you!
Please call our Volunteer Services Department at 281-338-7600 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns.
