VOLUNTEERING FOR RESTORE AFTER ABORTION
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Restore After Abortion! Restore is a non-profit organization offering compassionate abortion recovery support. Many teens and adults wrestle with symptoms of post-abortion stress and don’t know where to turn. We provide a safe, confidential space for these individuals to receive no-cost emotional support from our specially-trained team of staff and volunteers. It’s our goal to be a conduit of hope and healing in the lives of the people we serve, and we appreciate your openness to joining us on this important mission.
The work we do at Restore can be challenging. We’ve implemented a thorough volunteer application process because we understand that volunteering with Restore may not be a good fit for everyone. We also acknowledge that our incredible team members have diverse skills and passions, so we offer opportunities to serve in a variety of roles. The volunteer application process is meant to clarify (for your sake, our clients’, and our team’s), how your unique gifting may be utilized most effectively to make a healing impact.
