Direct Support for Safe House Residents
Direct Care Volunteers assist with overseeing the evening/overnight/weekend operations of The Potter’s Hands Safe House program at a minimum of 1 shift every two weeks. The position generally operates on a schedule, but volunteers may also be called for last minute emergency coverage. Hours will be in the evenings, weekends and holidays. Volunteers in this position must maintain the security and confidentiality needed for this type of specialized program. The Direct Care Volunteers must be available to assist the Staff Members in conflict or crisis situations and will be responsible for assisting with the maintenance of documentation and ensuring the smooth operation of the program during the assigned hours. The Direct Care Volunteers work with other staff and volunteers to create a supportive community, helping to meet the needs of each resident. If interested, please reach out to Deb at email@example.com or Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have three major fundraising events a year and we always need help with planning and the day of the event. Our Dinner and Dessert Auction takes place in the spring. We need volunteers to assist with planning, set up, making desserts for the auction, and inviting guests to attend by being a table leader. Our golf tournament takes place in August and we need help with planning, obtaining sponsors for the event and lots of volunteers for the day of the event. Our Hands of Hope Gala takes place in November and we need help with planning, obtaining sponsors for the event, table leaders, set-up, and clean-up. In addition to these events, we have smaller events throughout the year where we need assistance such as our rummage sale in the spring. We need people to sort and price items the day before the event and cashiers, floor crew and a clean-up committee the day of the event. If interested, please reach out to Deb Kuehner at firstname.lastname@example.org

Transitional housing for program graduates
As women graduate our program and leave our home, it's important for them have a safe place to live and establish their independence. Families that are willing to host program graduates and homes that can serve as transitional housing are such a blessing.
Storefront and/or Home for Transitional Housing
Phase 2 is a visionary project of The Potters Hands. The storefront will provide sustainable resources for operating expenses and work experience and training for safe house residents. The transitional home will help our residents transition safely into their new lives without the threat of revictimization. We are still prayerfully looking for a suitable retail site that could be donated or greatly discounted. If you can help, please send us a message.
