Volunteer Orientation

At Volunteer Orientation, you'll have the chance to meet the Volunteer Coordinator, view a Sex Trafficking 101 presentation, learn more about trauma-informed care as a volunteer at Breaking Free, and get to know the new system.

We understand that our volunteers are busy, so we're striving to make sure our volunteer program can fit into your schedule. Starting this fall, volunteer orientations will be offered on a quarterly basis. If you can't make the next orientation, keep an eye out for another orientation coming soon. Be sure to register! Space for Volunteer Orientation is limited.

Is your classroom, church, or community group interested in volunteering with Breaking Free? We have a number of opportunities for groups to get involved with our work, from preparing and serving meals during group nights, to landscaping projects at Permanent Housing, from sorting donations in the garage, to assembling hygiene packs.
