How You Can Help
Become a volunteer
Volunteers are an integral part of our services. There are several ways to volunteer with DVSN.
As a Domestic Violence Victim Assistance Program (DVVAP) Advocate, you would provide follow-up telephone support to victims of domestic violence referred by our police partners.
As a Court Support Program (CSP) Advocate, you would provide in-person guidance to victims at the Concord District Court.
Additionally, there are various opportunities to assist with projects and events to promote awareness and raise funds for DVSN.

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support charitable and non-profit organizations like DVSN every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you choose to support DVSN, you’ll find the exact same prices with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to help fund DVSN’s important work.
How do I select DVSN as my charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
The first time you use smile.amazon.com, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Search for “Domestic Violence Services Central Middlesex, Inc.” (DVSN’s official name at the time we signed up with AmazonSmile) or click this link to go directly to DVSN’s sign up page. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile on your Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone (found under settings on your app). Purchases made at the regular URL (amazon.com) do not count toward AmazonSmile donations. On your browser, you may want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it easier to remember to use it every time you shop. When you’re using the app, always check for the “AmazonSmile” logo to ensure you’re activated for AmazonSmile.
If I already use AmazonSmile, can I change my charity to DVSN?
Yes, you can change your charity any time. Your AmazonSmile purchases after the change count towards your newly selected charity. To change your charity on your web browser, simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.” You can also visit AmazonSmile under settings on your Amazon Shopping app and select “Change your Charity.”
