We love our volunteers! With your support we are able to serve our wonderful foster, adoptive, and kinship families. We welcome individuals and group volunteers. Kids are also invited to volunteer, 16 and under need adult supervision. Please join our Facebook group and sign up to volunteer at our upcoming events.

Examples of volunteer opportunities are:

  • Shoppers – during open hours assist our families to shop for the items they need
  • Organizers – sort and organize closet donations, help organize the closet’s various rooms
  • Special Event Volunteers – keep an eye on our Facebook page for news about events
