Get Involved

What can you do?

You can be a part of the solution! You can donate money, volunteer your time and talents, spread the word about the work that UCAN is doing, or request a presentation for your business, church or civic organization.


Volunteers are the very heart of UCAN. To extend our capacity to deliver services and to keep true to our mission, UCAN is a place where volunteers not only do the important work of providing services to those affected by domestic violence, but they also help plan and shape the work of the group. Volunteers are empowered and encouranged to grow, give, and learn. We have several opportunities for volunteering, depending on skills, expectations, availability, and level of commitment.
