DASI Volunteers Needed!! Our next volunteer training will begin in March.

Volunteers enhance our work and are vital to our mission.  Opportunities are available working directly with clients, and working to assist staff and the agency in general.  Due to the sensitive nature of the work and to certain legal requirements, volunteers may need to complete specialized training before active participation.  Direct service volunteer opportunities include: transportation (emergency and scheduled), donation pick-up and delivery, women's activities, children's activities, court accompaniment, follow-up services, Sexual Assault Response Team and Domestic Violence Response Teams.  Volunteers additionally help us raise funds, put on events, maintain buildings, and assist in general service delivery in the following ways:  Sales and merchandising at Morning Glory Thrift & Gift Shop (an ongoing fundraising initiative of DASI), office work, gardening/weeding/yard maintenance, donation pick up, special projects, special events, building repairs and maintenance, fundraising, community education, food bank, and food and cell phone drives.

Submit your application as soon as possible to begin the process! Applications are available by contacting DASI at 973-579-2386 or

The staff of DASI believes in the strength of survivors and begins by helping them to believe in themselves.

Many survivors are unaware that they have shown strength and courage in coping with their situations, in protecting their children, or by simply staying alive. Survivors can only make informed decisions about their lives when they feel safe, when they are aware of their options and when they know they are not alone.

DASI staff can assist with physical, emotional and psychological injuries, and help with safety planning, housing and financial emergencies. Services such as a 24-hour helpline, emergency shelter, counseling, support groups, advocacy, court preparation, medical and legal accompaniment, children's services, transportation, food and clothing are available.

"DASI literally saved my life and my daughter's life. We were so afraid something really bad was going to happen, and we were very grateful for the shelter." T.M.

"Facing him in court alone would have been my undoing.
The support of my advocate and the information she shared with me was SO helpful in making important life decisions and moving forward." D.S.
