These are just a few common areas that volunteers are needed. We welcome a variety of Volunteers and Interns so if there is a certain area that you are interested in, and aren't sure if we have a need for it, please email our volunteer coordinator


Due to current social distancing restrictions involving COVID-19, we have decided to suspend volunteer activities until further notice.

With recent updates due to COVID, we have come to the decision to suspend all internship placements in Battle Creek until Summer of 2021. We want to ensure that our interns have the staff and adequate duties/hours necessary for their placements. Currently, we do not feel it is the best scenario for all involved to ensure interns would be able to meet the requirements of their internship.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to having you back at S.A.F.E. Place when it is safe to do so. If you have any questions, please do no hesitate to reach out. 

- Thank you, Tina Michmerhuizen, Volunteer Coordinator
