Volunteer with ATVP!

The hotline volunteers at Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse are the first voices survivors hear when they call us. They're passionate, committed, caring people, and we rely on them to continue to provide 24-hour advocacy to both Whitman and Latah counties. We train volunteers twice a year in the spring and fall, and ask for a year's commitment from everyone who joins us. Do you want to help survivors? Consider becoming one of our volunteer advocates!
