Freedom's Rest - a shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence:
  • Volunteer Transports- Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you hate the mundane? Transporting may be the perfect volunteer position for you! Throughout the week we need volunteers to drive ladies and occasionally their children to doctor appointments, court, housing meetings and more! This is a fun way to meet and encourage some incredible women!

Volunteer Handyman- Do you enjoy fixing things? Do you want to volunteer some place with flexible hours fitting your busy schedule? Then we would love to have you join our volunteer team!

  • Neat Repeats Thrift Shop Volunteer- This is for volunteers both young and old who enjoy being around people, sorting and organizing the occasional 80’s workout outfits, and having loads of fun!
  • Work Groups- We are always in need of church groups, clubs, organizations, etc. to come out to Freedom's Rest for work days! Whether your group wants to throw a movie night for our kids, put together a holiday party for our families, assist us with yard work or a painting project we would love to have you!
