There are many ways to get involved and support our mission!

You can join us on social networks, on Facebook and Instagram, and share our awareness and promotional tools.

You can spread the word about our services by distributing SOS promotional material in your organization, your workplace, your union, your neighbourhood, etc., via our order form.

You can make a donation to SOS or ask your friends for donations on the occasion of your birthday via the Paypal Giving fund platform.

SOS violence conjugale does not currently employ volunteers to work on the helpline. This work involves too many potential dangers and is thus performed only by remunerated workers who receive continuing training. You can still call us and we'll be happy to put you in touch with a resource that is looking for volunteers!

The workers at SOS violence conjugale have various kinds of training related to social studies and community work (social work, psychology, sociology, etc.) and are specialized in supporting victims of violence and post-traumatic stress. SOS violence conjugale is fortunate in having an extremely stable team. Many of them have been with us for over 10 years, and some, for over 25 years. In addition to their extensive training and experience, SOS Violence conjugale workers are women who are very concerned about the issues and the difficulties facing victims of conjugal violence and are committed to helping every caller. Every situation is unique and every call is important to us.

If you want to join our team, are completely (or almost) bilingual and live in the Montreal area, feel free to send us your resume at info@sosviolenceconjugale.ca.
