The Barbra Schlifer Clinic’s many dedicated volunteers are essential to its services and programs.

The commitment and energy of our volunteers reflect their determination to help women build lives free of violence; Volunteers are valued members of the Schlifer Clinic!  We know that many volunteers make personal sacrifices to be available at the Clinic, and we are grateful to every one of them.
