be the village
You can make a difference!
We need you here! Hope Haven needs the community in order to function and provide care for children whose families are in a crisis situation. By volunteering at the nursery, you are relieving the single parent struggling with mental health without family support, the single dad that needs to look for a place to live, the parent who needs to work an extra shift to provide for their family, the custodial grandparent that needs to see the doctor, and more.
Sometimes families don't have a village and are left with no safe childcare options... that's where we come in.
Be a Volunteer Nanny
In the beginning, we anticipate to open evenings and weekends and hope to eventually be 24/7. We will need several volunteers to cover shifts to make this possible. Volunteer nannies will need to:
be at least 16 years of age*
be able to lift up to 40 pounds or serve with someone that can
fill out the application below
agree to a self-pay background check ($23)
*If you are under 18, you will need to be scheduled with someone 18+.
Use the application page below to fill out the volunteer form and to complete your background check. Once you have completed both, you will be able to access the scheduling tab at the bottom of this page (we will send you the password soon after).
Provide Meals & Snacks
Providing a safe place comes with the great need for nutritious meals and snacks. Volunteers willing to serve in this way will be vital to the nursery! Helping us fill bellies is no small feat. We are so thankful for any way you can provide groceries, pre-prepped/frozen meals, ready-to-go snacks, juice, formula, baby food... we'll use it! Please contact us to arrange drop off or if you'd like to check on current, specific needs.
Help With Housekeeping
If nannying isn't your cup of tea (or maybe it is) and you'd like to help us by cleaning the home, your help will be very appreciated and will allow us to focus our energy on caring for children and making them feel loved. Send us a message if you'd like to help in this way.
Help With Lawn Care
During the spring/summer months, if you would like to help up with yard upkeep, we would greatly appreciate that! It will be a huge help to be able to focus on the nursery and know the yard is taken care of. Please message us!
