We Value Our Volunteers

At The Sophia Way, we recognize that the programs that support our community would not be possible without the commitment of our volunteers. We are grateful to have so many people involved with The Sophia Way who have donate more than 15,000 hours every year to help women in our community move toward an independent, stable life.

We conduct personalized orientation for every volunteer and try to balance your skillset with our requirements. Ages 16 and over are welcome to volunteer at The Sophia Way. If you are younger than 16, you’ll need to bring along a parent or guardian when you volunteer.

There are many different ways that volunteers can contribute, be it providing the meals, supporting the front desk, participating in a group project, assembling fundraising materials or helping to plan an event. Whether you choose to give an hour, a day or an entire year of volunteer service, we value your time immensely and appreciate that you are giving back to the community.
