be the village

You can make a difference!

 

We need you here! Hope Haven needs the community in order to provide care for children whose families need some help. 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, a foster parent looking for respite and more.

 

Sometimes families don't have a village and are left with no safe childcare options... that's where we come in.

When families contact us about a need, we reach out to our volunteers via text to inform them of the need. Volunteers can then respond if they are available. Timeframes are able to be split between volunteers if needed and if we are able. If you have a child and wish to bring them with you to volunteer, please let us know first for approval. 

If we are not able to find a volunteer, we are unable to offer care. So, we need you! 

Here's how:

Be a Volunteer

  • ladies at least 16 years of age

  • able to lift up to 40 pounds or serve with someone that can

  • fill out the form below

  • agree to a self-pay background check ($23) or provide one done within the last year

Use the button below to fill out the volunteer form and to complete your background check (link at the foot of the form). If you need assistance paying for a background check, please reach out to us. If you would like to wait to complete it until you know a day/time is going to work out for you to volunteer, that is ok. It will need to be completed and results returned before volunteering. 

Provide Meals & Snacks

Providing a safe place comes with the great need for meals and snacks. Helping us fill bellies is no small feat. We are so thankful for any way you can provide groceries, ready-to-go snacks, juice, formula, baby food, etc. 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!
