Walnut Avenue Women’s Center loves volunteers! In fact, we wouldn’t be able to do so many of the wonderful things we do here without them. We look to people like you to help us move forward with our work each day.

Over the past year, our volunteers donated nearly 35,000 hours of time to the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center. This is equal to over 16 full time positions! Almost 70% of the services at WAWC are provided by trained volunteers.

So, what does this mean to our community? It means youth get mentors to help them navigate the challenges of experiencing violence in their homes and the adventures that come with adolescence; battered women have a caring voice to listen to them when they call the DV hotline; families learn how to set and attain their educational and professional development goals; our infants, toddlers and preschoolers learn in an optimal environment for their success; food bags are ready every week; and there is a compassionate human to greet you at our door.


Volunteer Orientations are held twice a month. Call our office at (831) 426-3062 to check on the dates and times for these trainings and to register. For more information, please refer to our Volunteer Page.
