Volunteers are an essential part of Prudence Crandall Center’s services. Our treasured volunteers enhance our work in a variety of ways – supporting our awareness-raising and fund-raising efforts as well as assisting with direct client services.


Direct Service volunteers may assist by answering crisis or hotline calls; co-facilitating support groups; court advocacy; and working with the children’s program. Following an interview and successful background check, each direct service volunteer must complete 25 hours of training for Domestic Violence Counselor Certification prior to their volunteer service.

Day of Caring Opportunities

Groups, families, and businesses often join forces to “spruce up” our facilities.  Projects are typically either half-day or full-day and may involve activities such as, painting walls and playground areas, raking leaves, spreading playground mulch, organizing donated goods, gardening, etc. If you would like to learn more, please call us at (860)-259-3819
