Make A Difference

Wondering how you can make the difference in the life of a child or the families that we serve?  There are many ways...

Volunteers Make A Big Difference! 
Offering your valuable time and talents can help change lives! We and our community partners have several opportunities for volunteers that include working with children and families, supporting special events, and providing office and clerical help. Some volunteer positions require background checks and specific training - let us know what you'd like to do and we'll help you get there! For more information, contact Development Director, Rita Elkins:

Provide In-Kind Donations of Products or Services
Sometimes, it's the little things that can make a big difference in a child or family's life. An oil change. Automobile or appliance repair. A haircut and new outfit for a child heading back to school or parent interviewing for a new job. Any of these can be a positive game-changer for a family in need. If you'd like to offer your products or services, please contact Development Director, Rita Elkins:
