VOLUNTEER

Volunteering at
My Sister's House

MSH volunteers serve in a variety of capacities to empower survivors of domestic violence and help end the cycle of domestic abuse in the Tri-county area. Because of the confidential and sensitive nature of our services, volunteers who work directly with our clients must apply individually and then complete a multi-step training process that lasts several weeks. This training prepares MSH volunteers to effectively support our program areas, assist victims of trauma, and follow protocols in victim service. 

Please note:
Because of the special training and the confidentiality requirements necessary for volunteers, My Sister’s House is not able to accept volunteers under 18 years of age.

Group Volunteering 

At this time we do not have the need for groups of volunteers. If you are a group that was considering supporting MSH with a project, we invite you to consider hosting an informational session for your group to learn more about domestic violence in the Lowcountry, how it impacts the lives of the victims and their families, and what we can do to stem the violence that plagues our community. This session can take place at the MSH Office or at the location of your group.
