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.
