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 hygiene item donation drive 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.
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. Counseling, advocacy, and safety planning are just a few of the services offered. All services provided are free and confidential.
