Superhero Signup for Spring Cleaning with Partnership Against Domestic Violence

Event 1: Spring Cleaning with Partnership Against Domestic Violence
When: March 24th
Where: Location will be provided to registered Superheroes
Time: 9a – 12n

PADV implements a holistic approach to ending intimate partner violence which not only supports survivors once abuse has occurred but also strives to prevent future violence. They do this by offering the following array of programs and services: emergency safe houses, 24-hour crisis lines, legal advocacy, outreach and prevention programs, supportive housing program, and support groups for women.

Join the Superheroes as we help give a spring cleaning to their shelter. Projects may include:

• Organize outside sheds
• Weeding and cleaning outside areas
• Landscaping project
• Organize and clean clothing boutique
• Deep clean dining room & kitchen
• Deep clean kid’s playroom and halls

Please note, we will make every effort to place your group (those signed up in one group) within the same project.

Though PADV would love the chance to work with everyone who is interested in lending a hand, there are some qualifications that each volunteer must meet:

• Shelter volunteers must be 18 years old or older. Due to state regulations, we are not allowed to have minors volunteer or accompany volunteers in our shelters.
• If you are a survivor of intimate partner violence (IPV) or have experienced a loss due to IPV, we ask that you wait a minimum of 12 months before volunteering as a direct service volunteer.
• Our volunteer opportunities are NOT available for those looking to complete court-ordered community service.

All registered volunteers will be required to sign two documents due to the sensitive and highly confidential nature of their work.
