The Children's Center is dedicated to giving struggling kids and their families a new start. The services we provide are their hope for a brighter and happier future. We couldn't do this without our incredibly important volunteers and the countless ways they contribute to this shared goal. Volunteer today and help to change the life a child for the better!

Our Therapeutic Preschool Classrooms Would Love
Our Therapeutic Preschool provides treatment for young children who have emotional or behavior problems and need extra help to be successful in a preschool setting. Each group needs volunteers to provide plenty of attention and positive support to the children during each three-hour session. Volunteers must be over 13 years old, and pass a background check. This is a long-term commitment, and you must be available for the same shift every week. Check our volunteer calendar to see when upcoming orientations are being held.
Support at our events
We have three major fundraising events every year. In March, June, and November, we can use volunteers to help us run these fundraisers. You must be over 21 to help during the events, but set up opportunities are open to all ages.
Toys are an important part of therapy here at The Children's Center and keeping them clean is an essential ongoing task. You can help our kids by volunteering to wash toys. It's a great service project for individuals and groups, and all ages are welcome! Toy washings are typically done between 3:00 PM-5:00 PM and you can view our volunteer calendar to see when the next opportunity is available.
Help Us Provide Child Care During our Social
This is a great after school volunteer opportunity. We'd love to have volunteers play with children whose siblings are in our Social Skills Groups from fall to spring. These are typically held two-three times a week between 3:45-5:00 PM or 4-5:15 PM. Volunteers must be over 13 years old.
Launch a Neighborhood or Workplace Drive
The Children's Center has constant need of certain items and supplies for the children. These items include:
- Diapers and pull-ups for our youngest children and underwear for our children that are toilet training
- Art supplies
- Gently used children's books for encouraging literacy
See our Wish List for additional items that help encourages the children in therapy.
