Volunteering & Projects

Thank you for finding & reading through this page. Kids need you.  In Africa, the Masai tribe have a greeting. Instead of saying "Hi, How Are you?".  They say, "And how are the children?"  They say this because they know their society is only as strong as the well-being of their children. Their response is always "and the children are well".

We are re-establishing the village it takes to raise a child. Especially a child disconnected from their family and from a hard place.  So again, thank you for leaning in and hoping to volunteer.

Our volunteers provide a variety of help.  If you have a skill, talent, interest, or passion, please contact us to see if we can find a fit for you. We like to steer volunteers into caring directly for a foster family and a child in foster care in their home.  We do this through a process called Care Communities. Click here to learn more. 


Here are some of the roles we look to fill:

  • Mentor/tutor children

  • Aid kids and families with transportation

  • Oversee children during foster parent training and support groups


  •  If you are a member of a Care Community and will be alone with the child in our care at anytime, you must complete this process. 

  • If you have any questions/concerns with the process, please call the office and ask for Paul.

  • We do this to comply with state regulations of anyone interacting with children in custody of a county
