FWAPA is also proud to help other organizations on an case by case basis.  Please check back often for opportunity updates.

SafeHaven of Tarrant County has a mission to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change.  SafeHaven formed in 2006 through a merger of Women’s Haven and The Women’s Shelter. SafeHaven’s two emergency shelters, one in Arlington and one in Fort Worth

Last year, 1,644 volunteers assisted SafeHaven in providing vital services to hundreds of women and children seeking refuge from domestic violence. As the number of domestic violence victims continues to increase, volunteers play an essential part in helping victims live free from violence. Volunteers can serve in a variety of ways including assisting with the Children’s Program, FUN Group, Hotline and Community Education.

The Women's Center - "Inspiring, teaching and empowering women and families to overcome violence, crisis and poverty"

Every year almost 100,000 women, men and children of all ages, ethnic and economic backgrounds are served by The Women’s Center.  They seek hope, emotional healing, solutions to family crises, and help finding a job or a path to a better life.  The serious problems they bring are devastating – rape and child sexual abuse, unemployment, wages too low to keep a family together, deep depression, and desperate situations created by family violence and poverty.

The Center works with these individuals to help them muster the power and courage to confront crisis, triumph over desperate situations, and build new skills and strategies that will improve their lives.  Today, The Women’s Center offers one of the most comprehensive rape crisis and victim services programs in the country, is a leader in employment programs for unemployed and underemployed people, and serves as a constant source of support for women and families in crisis and transition.

Tarrant Area Food Bank - "Feeding North Texans in Need: Hunger is Here.  You Can Help."

Tarrant Area Food Bank is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit serving Tarrant and 12 neighboring counties on the west side of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) metropolitan area. As a North Texas food bank that serves more than Tarrant County, our name is Tarrant AREA Food Bank.

Tarrant Area Food Bank is the distribution hub of a 13-county network of hunger-relief charities and social services centers.  As a central clearinghouse for donated food and groceries, the Food Bank receives fresh, frozen and nonperishable food donated by the food industry and the community. We distribute this product from our 69,000 square-foot warehouse in Fort Worth to our 300 partner agencies that serve abuse victims, children, the elderly, the chronically ill, the unemployed, the working poor, the homeless and other Texans in need.
