Spend some of your time helping the community by getting involved at Waypoint. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities to choose from, ranging from ongoing commitments to yearly events. Coordinating a donation drive for our Daytime Resource Program or collecting hygiene items for our May Baskets for the Homeless event are a couple other ways to make a difference in the lives of others.

Helping domestic violence victims renew their lives

Through Waypoint's Domestic Violence Victim Services, victims are connected with resources that help them flee abusive households and overcome the effects of domestic violence.
