Get Involved

Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter offers several opportunities for community members to become involved in the work of ending domestic violence. Please click on your area of interest or call 218-444-1395 for more information.


Please consider participating in an upcoming awareness or fundraising event.


Volunteers are needed for transportation, children’s activities, answering crisis calls, assisting with awareness events, and much more.


Sponsorship is greatly appreciated; NBWS is supported in part by generous community members.  Many currently donate gently used clothing, furniture, and household supplies.


Employment opportunities exist periodically to work directly with the families and individuals.


The Board of Directors guides policy development and provides financial oversight for the organization.
