Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things

Hubbard House, the certified domestic violence center serving Duval and Baker counties, is observing April 18-24, 2010 as National Volunteer Week, and celebrating ordinary people doing extraordinary things to improve their community. Hubbard House would like to thank all of its volunteers for the unwavering support, dedication and compassion they provide to our organization.

“Volunteers serve in every aspect of the agency,” said Laine Reinecke-Clayton, Community Education Manager for Hubbard House. “Without them we could not begin to provide the level of services to victims in our community.”

In fact, volunteers founded Hubbard House more than 33 years ago, and the agency continues to depend heavily on the generous gifts of time from many deeply loyal volunteers. Last year, Hubbard House had more than 600 volunteers give a total of over 14,400 hours of their time to help victims of domestic violence.

There are a many areas volunteers can get involved with at Hubbard House ranging from administrative work to working at the thrift store. People who are looking for other opportunities can help by assisting with community education, working at special events and helping in the daycare. Annually, Hubbard House serves over 5000 women, children and men. With the help of its dedicated volunteers, Hubbard House can give each and every victim the support they need.
