Volunteer Opportunities

Fundraising/Event Committee

You can help with planning and preparing fundraisers and events throughout the year. Prior non-profit fundraising or event planning experience a plus. Flexible schedule and time commitment.

Resource Center Team

Our Resource Centers serve as a hub for those caring for children in foster care. Volunteers are needed to help sort and organize donations during weekday time slots and assist families who might be visiting during those times. Sign-up slots go out in our monthly volunteer newsletters and ongoing commitment is flexible. Once your volunteer application is approved, you will be added to the newsletter list so you can keep up with current needs and opportunities.

On-Call Team

We need help delivering Welcome Packs, beds, car seats, and other basic necessities to children entering foster care, as well as folks on standby for when various needs arise. Volunteers must be willing to drive to our Resource Closet to pick up donations and deliver to foster homes in McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Rhea Counties. Commitment and hours are flexible; compassion for children and families walking through hard circumstances is a must. Once your application to volunteer is approved, volunteers will be added to a group notification app where you'll be notified of needs as they arise and have the ability to volunteer based on your availability.

Leadership Roles

We are looking for "doers" with a passion for making a difference in the lives of children in foster care. If you've ever wanted to take the reins on a project that uses your unique gifts to enrich the lives of others, then we would love to have you on our team! We are looking for professionals with skills like marketing, accounting, fundraising, etc. who can commit to at least four hours per week, but hours and location are flexible.
