DV Volunteer Training


Desert Rose has many volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups who want to help victims of domestic abuse. If you have a desire to serve those in need, Desert Rose is just the place for you. All volunteers go through a 4-hour training depending on the area they will serve. If you are working directly with the women and children we require a background check.

To register for training or for questions, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (765) 342-7673.
