There are over 27 million slaves in this world and it can be overwhelming to think how you can help. We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. If we only restore one, it's worth it!

Be a part of ending exploitation. Together we can do much. 

We love our dedicated volunteers. They help us by serving our organization based on their own interests, skills, and availability. If you are interested in volunteering you will need to complete a volunteer application, a criminal background check, and the required volunteer training.


Wings of Refuge has Volunteer Phase 1 Training twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.

If you are interested in one of the above volunteer opportunities you will need to sign up for training.
