Volunteering is a great way to help the mothers and children who call The Haven home. Whatever your interests or abilities, we have an opportunity for you! Please contact us with questions or complete the Volunteer Application to get started.
Committee & Leadership Opportunities
Help guide The Haven toward a successful future by sharing your knowledge and experience. Most positions include regularly scheduled meetings, once a month or less.
Help care for infants while their mothers attend class, plan structured activities for our toddlers and preschoolers, or get a group together and give respite during our monthly Mom’s Night Out. Babysitters are typically needed between 10 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. and occasionally on weekends.
Teach the Haven residents in one of our seven focus areas: Housing, Physical and Emotional Health, Spirituality, Independent Living Skills, Parenting, Education or Employment.
Love to cook? Our residents have life skills classes from 10 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Mondays with little time in between to honor their regular cooking routine. You can help us keep the residents on schedule by preparing and serving our noontime meal. If Mondays don’t work, there are other opportunities for special holiday or “just because” meals.
The Haven’s garage is full of donations (clothes, household goods, furniture, and more) for the Maternity Shelter residents and Aftercare clients. Volunteers are needed to sort donations and organize them on our shelving units.
Assist The Haven in running the “business side” of the shelter. Volunteers can help with graphic design, answer phones, work on data entry, or organize files.
Gardening, Grounds & “Honey Do” Tasks
Roll up your sleeves and help maintain The Haven’s gardens and grounds. Plant flowers, pull weeds, pick-up litter, or help with other jobs like painting or spring cleaning.
You can also help The Haven by volunteering to host baby showers or diaper drives for us at work, school, church or with other membership organizations. Collect items that are necessities for The Haven’s mothers, infants, toddlers and preschoolers and drop them off at the shelter.
Group Volunteer Projects
Volunteer groups of up to 15 people are welcome at The Haven. Each group will be assigned different tasks depending on The Haven’s needs. To schedule your group, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at least two weeks prior to your volunteer date.
