Power Inside volunteers fill labor gaps for projects or tasks that use technical or administrative skills that are needed but unfunded. For example, volunteers conduct research, write reports and grants, input data, manage capacity building projects, host events and lectures, assist with donation drives, and ally with Power Inside on advocacy and public education. At times, volunteers provide direct client services such as facilitate support groups, tutor clients; provide health education, or assist us with other client programs.
Be a Resource
Women who are trying to get off the streets or reintegrate into the community after being incarcerated face overwhelming barriers. Often, women are denied public resources due to their criminal record and lack of affordable housing, education and health care make matters worse. In addition to emotional support, Power Inside offers practical resources such as new underwear, bras, toiletries, sanitary supplies, school supplies, bus tokens, food, postage, educational and self-help books, clothing, reading glasses, etc. We appreciate donations of all of these items and any referrals to obtain goods and services that will directly support our work with women and families.
Become an Advocate
Power Inside works toward systemic change of conditions that give rise to incarceration. Our staff and volunteers contribute to local justice movements and collaborative efforts through advocacy, leadership development and public education.
