Be a Change-Maker

To truly create social change, activism must happen not only nationally but also right here in Cowlitz County.  It can happen in small, everyday actions as well as creative ways using large-scale or far reaching venues like the media or social networking. Some of the most important steps you can take are simple and can make a big difference. 

Volunteers CORE Training. If interested in volunteering at emergency support shelter. contact us at 3604251176


ESS offers a series of free trainings to anyone interested. The greatest current need is for volunteers who are whiling to respond to victims of sexual assault at ESS. Volunteering is a great way to promote safety, hope and healing to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other crimes.  In order to fulfill the Washington state requirements, the training's will total 30 hours.  We are also always in need of volunteers who can perform some light landscaping work which would require no training.
