Promise Place, the council on domestic violence that serves over 1,000 women and children each year in Fayette, Spalding, Pike and Upson counties, is in need of volunteers. A volunteer orientation will be held on Saturday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Flint River Library in Griffin located at 800 Memorial Drive.

There are many different ways that you can help support the Promise Place mission and keep the organization thriving: helping with fundraisers, working one-on-one with victims who need support, childcare while the mothers are in classes or support groups, helping in the office, being involved with the youth education programs about teen dating violence, giving support to the clients while in court, providing transportation for the shelter residents to their appointments locally, helping to maintain the shelter and much more.

For more information or to register call the volunteer coordinator at 770-719-3486. For more information about Promise Place and their programs for victims of domestic violence call 770-460-1604.
