General Support

As asmall grassroots organization, Clarina depends on volunteers behind the scenes to help carry our important work with survivors forward.Not all shelter volunteers make direct service contributions. If you have a special skill, trade, or service and a few hours to spare, you could have tremendous impact on our abilty to meet the needs of survivors of domestic and sexual violence.  Every donated hour for general, program, and shelter support helps us direct resources to services and programs for survivors of violence!

  • Shelter Support: skilled technicians in carpentry, electrical, and other fields who donate all or a portion of time help Clarina make needed improvements or complete sewing projects like purple curtains and tablecloths for special events. Help with yard work, cleaning, and food prep makes a world of difference! 
  • Program Support: Clarina's GEMS (Gathering to Explore Mastery of Skills) program offers shelter guests on site activities and learning. Clarina is seeking community partners, clinical specialists, artists, fitness instructors, and others who would like to donate an hour to shelter as a session leader or instructor to lead a class, discussion, or activity.
