Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing seeks volunteers to provide a safe, supervised space for children while their parents attend onsite groups or meetings.
About Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing
Broadview provides secure, confidential housing for parents with kids who’ve survived domestic violence (DV) and are moving out of homelessness. Using a trauma-informed care model, we help families address the issues that led to their housing loss, develop a strong community support system, and find and secure permanent housing. Volunteers play an important role at Broadview!
