Your commitment of time is the greatest gift of all
As a volunteer, you make a direct and immediate impact to our children and families. Whether you volunteer individually or in a group, we welcome you to come work the best job in town – service to our families at their moment of greatest need. From cooking, cleaning, comforting or by simply being there, volunteers help us care for our families.
We have several ways for you to donate your time and invite you to find an opportunity that fits you best.
How often can I volunteer?
You can participate in a one-time opportunity as part of a group or at a special event, or you can volunteer regularly as an individual volunteer at our Houses or Family Rooms. We ask our individual volunteers to commit to set, recurring shifts for at least one year.
Are there any age requirements for volunteers?
Some opportunities have specific age requirements to ensure a fun and safe experience for all volunteers and families.
- Meals from the Heart volunteers must be at least 13 years old and groups including children should have at least one adult present for every three kids
- Cookies from the Heart volunteers must be at least 6 years old and groups including children should have at least one adult present for every three kids
- Family Activity Program volunteers must be at least 6 years old and groups including children should have at least one adult present for every three kids
- Individual volunteers (such as Family Ambassadors, House Refreshers, etc.) must be at least 18 years old
