Volunteer Opportunities

Women’s Recovery Center utilizes a volunteer application that includes information to conduct a background check and reference check. We require all volunteers to agree to confidentiality policies and background checks. Volunteer opportunities include one-time or regular opportunities. Opportunities include cleaning, child care, building help, outreach, reception and board committees.

For those positions that include direct contact with children and clients, it is required that volunteers have a criminal background check performed and sent to the Women’s Recovery Center at 6209 Storer Avenue, Cleveland OH 44102. The volunteer is responsible for the cost which ranges from $40 to $60. Background checks can be performed in most police stations.



We are actively seeking good people to become board members to serve our worthy cause. This is an opportunity to enrich your career though networking with like-minded people. It also provides the means to add noteworthy experience to your resume. More importantly, by joining our executive team you will be giving back to a population that needs assistance. We are doing all we can to help these folks and welcome your support in achieving the goal of healing the opioid epidemic.


Please contact the Executive Director, Ashley Yassall, for further information at ayassall@womensctr.org or (216) 651-1450.

Board Member Testimonials 

“I am very proud to serve on the Women's Recovery Center's Board. The fight against substance use disorder is very near to my heart and I have seen the impact first hand that it has on people and families. Substance use is devastating on so many levels and impacts everyone around the user. Women have such unique needs in this area, especially women who have families that depend on them. Part of what drew me to WRC was the focus on those unique needs of women and removing the barriers that get in the way of recovery.”

“Why are we a trusted partner in the fight against SUD? Because the Women's Recovery Center serves clients irrespective of their ability to pay and, better yet, its counsel is organized operationally to engage clients within 24 hours of any plea for help.”

“The Women's Recovery Center is a very necessary and specific community of healing on the Near West Side of Cleveland. All recovery is important, but gender specific treatment for women, often single mothers, is critical for the health of our most vulnerable population. I have served on the Board of Trustees for over 5 years, and continue to support the organization because of the excellent, caring staff, the robust volunteer network, and the supportive, active Board. Reach out to us, and see how you can help women recover!"
