Child abuse is not only a tragedy for the child and family, but also for our entire community. You can help overcome the effects of child abuse by participating in one of the many programs for clients. Your support can make a world of difference to a child who needs hope.
Volunteer opportunities include:
Greet guests in our lobby, answer phones, complete data entry, interact with children, organize our lobby and donation rooms, and refresh seasonal landscaping.
Program Support Volunteer
Help organize and pick up donations during our backpack, Thanksgiving and Christmas client support programs.
Special Event Volunteer
Assist during one of our special event fundraisers throughout the year including soliciting donations for silent auction items, checking in and greeting event guests, event set up and logistical support.
Assist during group counseling nights at one of our centers by doing crafts, playing games and coordinating our sibling support groups.
