Children’s Group
While our women residents attend Life Skills Classes and House Meetings, we provide a range of planned activities for the children and are in need for volunteers to help coordinate and supervise. Our kids range from newborn to age 16. We do look for a regular commitment; however, it does not have to be every week.

Times available: Every Wednesday from 5:45 pm – 7:30 pm; 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month from 5:45 pm – 7:30 pm.

Please note: We currently are looking for summer volunteers.


Administrative
During the week, we look for help with the administrative end of our agency. We often look for help answering the telephones and transferring phone calls. Other needs vary, but can include filing, stuffing envelopes, typing, inventory, donations, etc. These tasks are very important to keeping our organization running efficiently. This is very flexible during our normal office hours.

Times available: Weekdays from 9 am – 5 pm.


Handiwork
With three locations, there is much maintenance work that needs to be done at our various sites. This can include anything from minor repairs to painting. We need volunteers to be available on an on-call basis as repair needs arise.

Times available: Vary with need


Run a Drive
Organize your school group, church group, neighborhood or friends to run a drive collecting some of our most-needed items. Contact our Donations Coordinator to obtain a Wish List prior to conducting a drive.

Times available: All


Monthly Projects
Help to organize our donations or wrap presents during our busy holiday season. Anything else that may need to get done throughout our sites is always extremely helpful!

Times available: Vary with need
