Harrington House seeks large pool of volunteers

Del Norte County’s domestic violence shelter will hold a training session next month and is hoping to draw from as big a pool of volunteers as it can.

Jolanda Ingram, the Harrington House’s new director, said the facility needs volunteers for a plethora of jobs ranging from manning its 24-hour crisis telephone line and staffing the emergency shelter to helping with peer support groups and being an advocate for clients as they figure out how to leave an abusive relationship.

Those who want to volunteer must be able to pass a background check, a drug screening and have a good driving record. They also have to be able to work with Harrington House’s hours, which could include working the graveyard shift at the emergency shelter, Ingram said.
