We are thrilled that you are considering joining our passionate and hardworking network of volunteers who help make New Hope’s work possible! Every day, New Hope relies heavily upon the generosity of members of our community.
Below are some of the ways you can get involved:
SANE Medical Advocacy
New Hope provides trained advocates to every survivor of sexual assault at Morton Hospital in Taunton and Sturdy Hospital in Attleboro. Survivors receive accompaniment, support, and referrals to heal in the aftermath of sexual violence. SANE advocates volunteer for on-call, overnight shifts.
To be considered, you must be 18 years or older, local to the area, have reliable transportation, available for some weekend and holiday coverage, and able to commit to training. This 40-hour training serves as a comprehensive overview of sexual and domestic/intimate partner violence and abuse, understanding trauma, survivor-centered advocacy, and working with folks who have been affected by these types of violence.

Social Media Ambassador
One of the best ways to donate your time to New Hope is to join our Social Media Ambassador Team! Social Media plays a large role in New Hope’s outreach goals. The more folks that are aware of New Hope and our services, the more we can assist! Our Social Media Ambassador Volunteers follow New Hope (@newhopeinc) on all social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and share our content. It may sound simple, but sharing our posts can be vital for engaging with our community and making sure our information and resources are accessible for all. There is a lot of room in this position for creativity and suggestions–we are always looking to learn from others!
Event Volunteers are needed throughout the year to assist with the planning and running of our several yearly fundraising and awareness events.
We also rely on volunteers to help us promote different fundraising and awareness campaigns throughout the year.
Development and Marketing Volunteers are needed to assist with computer-based research and data-entry, as well as assist with the running of our social media platforms and analytics. Volunteers interested in assisting our Development and Marketing Department should have a background or strong interest in digital marketing and social media.
Any volunteer who will be directly interacting with clients must go through a screening interview/application, CORI/reference check and must attend our Domestic and Sexual Violence Pre-Service Training.
Volunteers must be 18+ years of age and have own transportation.
Some additional training may be required, depending upon the specific duties of the position.
