Volunteer work

Welcome Volunteer! This Web site space is dedicated to you!

Our volunteers are people of all ages and all walks of life who are in various stages of their lives. What they have in common is the desire to make a difference in their communities and in their own lives by contributing their time and expertise.

They make all the difference in the lives of children and organizations through their generous contributions of time, skill and involvement. There are times you can do to help! Our organization depends on volunteers with varied skills. Put your time to the welfare of children and families in many volunteer positions available.
