“I grew up in a home where I witnessed domestic violence as a young child. Years later, my mother started volunteering at a local shelter leading group sessions for battered women. As an adult, I decided to follow in my mother’s footsteps and began to volunteer with Live Violence Free. I took the crisis intervention class and before long started to take calls on the crisis phone. I’ve answered crisis calls for many years now and the reward of helping these victims in their time of need is something I could not have imagined.”

Star Volunteer of the Month

Larry Schussel has been a volunteer with Live Violence Free for three years now. He volunteers with compassion and much experience. We feel very lucky to have him on our team!

“After I retired I wanted to stay connected to the community and become an advocate in an agency that addressed similar needs. I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to serve as a volunteer at Live Violence Free.”
