Get Involved

Volunteer

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, contact DVIP’s Volunteer Coordinator for more information at 319.351.1043 or 800.373.1043 or submit a Volunteer Application. DVIP suggests a commitment of 3 hours per week of volunteer time if possible, but will work with you and your schedule.

Become a Volunteer

DVIP suggests a commitment of 3 hours per week of volunteer time; however, many of DVIP’s volunteers have active schedules, and most are able to work in a couple of hours per month on a regular basis. If time is an issue, please call for more information. DVIP is willing to work with you and accommodate your special situation.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Victim Advocate

These trained individuals are the core of DVIP’s volunteer program. They answer crisis lines, perform emergency intakes, facilitate support groups, provide advocacy in a variety of settings, and provide information and referrals to victims of domestic violence.

Youth Volunteer

DVIP is always in need of youth volunteers. While youth make up half of our shelter residents, DVIP has funding for only two full-time staff members to handle youth issues and programming. From playing video games with a group of teenagers to taking the kids in shelter to the park, to facilitating a pre-teen support group, youth volunteers play a vital role at DVIP.

Board of Directors

Joining the Board of Directors is an outstanding way to share the resources and skills that you can uniquely offer. Our Board is very active in long-range goal planning and policy development, fundraising and community education/awareness. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Board of Directors, contact DVIP at (319) 356-9863 ext 2 for more information, or complete a Board of Directors Application.
