Volunteer or donate to Anawim House, a refuge, a home, a meeting ground, and a source of hope for many of Victoria’s street community.
Who We Help
Anawim helps those who want to be helped. We are a clean house (free from drugs and alcohol) that provides for those basic needs to which every individual is entitled. What we provide, above all, is a safe home people can come to and feel like they are a part of something. We do our best to provide a feeling of family.
Anawim encourages personal growth, attending a twelve step program, seeking professional help, education or returning to the work force. We also go out as a family on outings; bowling, golf, hiking, swimming or for something as simple as just going out for ice cream. Anawim shows people how to live in a loving, caring, spiritual environment.
Anawim House is an adult only facility. We offer an outreach day program where those in need of companionship and sharing can drop by 6 days a week. We also provide a well-rounded residential program through which residents are encouraged to seek to change their self defeating behaviors, achieve 30 days of sobriety, and treat others with kindness and respect.
Volunteer Positions / Internship Positions
Anawim is looking for permanent and casual volunteers to fill various roles. We are a not-for-profit society that places helping those that are less fortunate as it’s primary goal. We provide meals, showers, laundry and a place to call home for people on a daily basis, while in a sober environment. We are currently entering our twenty-fifth year and with that are looking to step up to the challenge of providing more services, programs and assistance to Victoria’s most vulnerable population. We need your help…
We depend heavily upon our volunteers to make the unique environment of Anawim work. Whether you are looking to volunteer once a month, once a week or to do a full-time internship, we want to hear from you. Below is a list of immediate needs that we have; however, we are open to hearing about your skills and what you could bring to the home:
