Children’s Programs Volunteer Needs

There are several different ways to volunteer with the Children’s Programs at Our House-from indirect service, helping with organizational needs, to hands-on service with with children. We ask that volunteers who wish to work directly with children commit to volunteering at least once a week, in order to create stronger bonds and a sense of stability with youth.

 

Upcoming Children’s Programs Volunteer Opportunities:

November 6th-7th – Our Club will be open all day from 7:30am-5:30pm for the school out days. We will need volunteers to assist with activities throughout the day.

November 24th-26th – Our Club will be open all day from 7:30am-5:30pm for Thanksgiving Break. Volunteers can help out with the days’ activities, assist with set-up/clean-up of any event or activity.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm – Every Tuesday and Thursday evening the Learning Center provides adult education and the Children’s Programs provides childcare and programming so parents can take a class, build their resumes, or job search. We always need volunteers to serve and help out with our kids.

 

Want to work directly with the youth and children at Our House, but don’t have enough time to regularly volunteer?  Here are some ideas of ways you can get involved this month:

  • Host a meal for our weekly R.O.A.R. (Recognizing Our Anger and Responsibility) meeting that occurs every Thursday 6-7pm.
  • Host a donation drive for shoes, belts, or sports balls (basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, etc.)
  • Adopt-A-Family is a drive that caters to making the Holidays special for Our House’s residents, CAFSI clients, and community members. We need donors who are able to fulfill the wish list of 100 + children and their families. We are looking for individuals, church groups, co-workers, offices, organizations, families etc. to commit to providing basic needs and want specified by our families. All gifts will be passed out to parents allowing them to enjoy their holiday celebration as a family.
