Volunteering at CADA
“We volunteer to help share smiles and stress relief, but we end up getting just as much out of it as we give!” – CADA Volunteer
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Are you one of those folks who enjoys cleaning? We are looking for help keeping our spaces clean, tidy, and welcoming for the people we serve. One-time and ongoing opportunities are available!
CADA's outdoor spaces could use some care and attention. If you're interested in helping pull weeds or pick up brush, this is the position for you. One-time and ongoing opportunities are available!
Shelter volunteers work closely with shelter advocates to provide services and support to victims in shelter and on the crisis line. Shelter volunteers must complete CADA’s 40-hour sexual assault advocacy certification training and be willing to commit to 6 months of service. Daytime and evening opportunities are available!
This is a great volunteer opportunity for anyone who wants to help CADA, but isn't looking for a direct service volunteer position. Our donation management volunteers help accept, sort, and organize all of the items that get donated to our organization. We have limited storage space, and you can help ensure our space is used effectively and that things are easy to find at a moment's notice!
Do you prefer to help out behind the scenes? Our Administrative Volunteers help with everything from stuffing envelopes, to answering the door, to organizing paperwork, and so much more! We are looking for a volunteer who can commit to several months of service.
If you have other skills or talents you wish to share with our clients or organization, please let us know! For example, in the past, volunteers have facilitated music and yoga groups. Volunteer hairstylists also provide haircuts for shelter residents. There is no wrong way to lend a hand!
CADA occasionally has opportunities for larger groups interested in a one-time volunteer project. If your company, church, organization or group of students is interested in group volunteer opportunity, please contact our volunteer coordinator.
People interested in volunteering with CADA should complete the volunteer application and submit it to Holly, our Volunteer Coordinator.
After receiving your application, we will be in touch to let you know if we have a placement opportunity. Some volunteer positions will require an interview.
Due to the sensitive and confidential nature of CADA’s services, we must screen all volunteers carefully. Volunteers must complete a Minnesota Department of Human Services background check.
