The Elizabeth Freeman Center’s next scheduled volunteer training will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, March 5 to 27, in the Center’s main office at 43 Francis Ave.

Elizabeth Freeman Center is the agency in Berkshire County dedicated to providing services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. These services include a 24-hour toll-free hotline, safe shelter, counseling, support groups, advocacy, on-site legal aid appointments, supervised visitation, educational programming, youth prevention services, and pet foster care.

The agency has offices in North Adams, Pittsfield and Great Barrington. All of the services are free and confidential; many rely heavily on volunteers.

Trainings are held only once or twice per year, and training is required for all volunteers interested in working on the Center’s hotline, in its offices, in its shelter, or in the courts.

For information on volunteering or attending March’s training, contact Denise, volunteer coordinator, at (413) 499-2425 or email deniseb@elizabethfreemancenter.org. All inquiries are welcome.
