Laura's House encourages volunteer involvement and the development of community resources to enhance our programs and build closer ties with the community. In addition to providing support to clients and their families, volunteers help increase the knowledge and understanding of domestic violence our community. We love our Laura's House Volunteers!

The BEST way to get started in the Laura's House Volunteer Program is to attend a Volunteer Orientation. These Orientations are held twice a month—one offered in the evening and another during business hours each month.

We are limited to 15 attendees per Orientation, so please sign up online as soon as possible: Click here and if you do not see the above dates, they have been removed from the listing because they are at full capacity.
Please be prompt. We will be unable to admit attendees who are late to the Orientation.
Orientation Location: 999 Corporate Drive, Ladera Ranch, CA 92694

Once a volunteer has attended a Volunteer Orientation and completed an application, your email address is added to our Volunteer Connection Monthly Newsletter. This newsletter goes out during the last week of each month and outlines our volunteer needs in the coming weeks and months. Volunteers are then directed to sign up for opportunities through the Volunteer Local website:

Opportunities include:

  • Administrative/Office Volunteer
  • Event Volunteer
  • Outreach Volunteer
  • Resale Store Retail Volunteer
Some of our Volunteer Opportunities require the 40 Hour Domestic Violence Advocacy Training because of their direct service role with our clients. Completion of this training does not guarantee a position, but allows a volunteer the opportunity to interview for a position when a timeslot becomes available. Each volunteer must provide a copy of their 40 Hour Domestic Violence Advocacy Training Certificate, complete a background check, and in some roles provide TB Test results.
The next 40 Hour Domestic Violence Advocacy Training hosted by Laura's House is scheduled for the Fall of 2013. More information regarding the training and instructions on how to sign up are available on our website: Space is limited.
