Tahoe Women's Services Charity Profile

TAHOE WOMEN'S SERVICES (TWS) is a community-based organization providing direct services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and other individuals in crisis. Incorporated as an independent non-profit, 501(c)3 public benefit corporation in 1985, the agency maintains three office sites, one shelter and has 22 staff members and 3 AmeriCorps Volunteers.

TWS is currently the only agency providing assistance to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in the North Lake Tahoe-Truckee region of California and Nevada. In California, TWS serves the Truckee community in Nevada County and several Placer County communities along the north shore portion of Lake Tahoe. In Nevada, TWS serves the Incline Village and Crystal Bay communities along the north shore portion of Lake Tahoe. All information and services are available in English and Spanish.

TAHOE WOMEN'S SERVICES believes that every person has the right to live a life free of violence. The agency works to empower victims in reclaiming those rights by providing safety, advocacy, education and support.

Tahoe Women's Services Volunteer Information

The Tahoe Women’s Services (TWS) volunteer programs offer a variety of opportunities to serve the community. TWS is committed to reducing the incidence and trauma of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. TWS empowers survivors to move through crisis to self-sufficiency by providing reliable, consistent and progressive services. To do this successfully, TWS relies on their large volunteer corps, who work in a number of different programs requiring varying degrees of time commitment. There is usually a project that can fit into everyone’s busy schedule and if there isn't a fit, some people tailor their volunteering to their individual schedules.

To become proficient, all of our volunteers who work with clients must complete our Crisis Intervention Training. The training is an intensive 63-hour course being held on a combination of Tuesday evenings, Thursdays evenings and three Saturdays over eight weeks. The evening sessions will be from 6 to 9 pm. Saturday will be from 9 am to 4 pm. The trainees will be expected to attend all the sessions.

Topics covered during the training include: the basics of domestic violence and sexual assault, cultural diversity, substance abuse, legal issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse, date rape, child abuse, suicide, peer counseling and crisis intervention techniques.
