Our amazing volunteers help us live our mission.

Throughout Prince William County, volunteers for Domestic Violence Services are taking calls and assisting victims in finding safe shelter. Sexual Assault Services volunteers take calls, as well, directing victims, reporting options, and     encouraging medical care. Volunteers for both Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services accompany victims in hospitals and in courtrooms, advocating for them and giving them support.

Get Involved

ACTS is truly unique when it comes to the variety of roles volunteers play within the organization. On any given day at ACTS, you will see volunteers in the Hunger Prevention Center receive donations, stock and replenish shelves, pack food bags, and distribute groceries. A visit to the Admin building finds Finance Department volunteers inputting data and scanning documents. Behind closed doors amid the muffled whoosh of sound machines are volunteers trained to answer crisis phone calls for ACTS’ 24-hour helpline.  Across the parking lot, volunteers in the ACTS Family Services building assist in facilitating support groups for children and adults touched by domestic violence and sexual assault.
