Volunteers

We have ongoing volunteer opportunities for groups and individuals. For one-time group projects there are a number of ways volunteers can make a tremendous impact on our organization and the families we serve, such as assisting at special events, light yard work, painting, and sanitizing toys. Our on-going volunteer opportunities vary from working directly with clients to much needed staff support.

To send us your information for volunteer opportunities, please visit our careers page.
