Volunteer Program
    The volunteer program at SafeHouse of The Desert helps bring hope to some of the world’s most disadvantaged youth. The volunteers serve as the heart of the organization and play a vital role by supporting staff in serving children from the Coachella Valley, and the surrounding areas, who enter our shelters.

    Our Volunteers reflect compassion, selflessness, patience, and just plain love for others. It’s the open-handedness of the heart and soul that comes from people who volunteer at SafeHouse of the Desert.

    How do our Volunteers make a Difference?
    Outreach/ Fundraising: The Desert Volunteers assist in increasing the community’s awareness of children in crisis by representing the organization at community events and assisting in education and outreach of our mission.

    Activities: Volunteers lead groups with the kids and perform a variety of activities, both fun and educational.

    • Some groups include: Cooking, Pickle ball, Arts and Crafts, Fitness, Calligraphy, Yoga, and Nutrition.

    Interns: Interns assist as support staff for direct care of clients. Including supervising youth, answering crisis calls, daily reports and just being good role models for the youth.
