The Experience

Our organization provides a loving, secure home for children and young adults of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned, or abandoned. Every volunteer has some talent that they can share. You don’t need to be an engineer or a certified child psychologist. A genuine love for children and an enthusiasm to work is a basic requirement. Skills that volunteers can bring include art, photography, sports, tutoring + more!
