Give of Yourself: Become a Volunteer with ESCAPE

ESCAPE relies on volunteers to propel our mission and our movement. Volunteers support our organization in a variety of ways. They can be found supporting educators in classrooms, assisting staff in the office and lending a hand at fundraising events. Specially trained volunteers may speak at community fairs and professional conferences around the city, helping us inform the public about the dangers of child abuse and ESCAPE’s efforts to protect children from this epidemic. No matter how you volunteer, your efforts are invaluable. With your help, we can change the world, one family at a time.
