Volunteers Make a Difference

Volunteering connects you to our community of families, saves our organization money, helps you build a network of parents to share resources and helps increase public awareness.

Thank you for considering volunteer opportunities!

  • Interested in something new? Let us know and we would love to help you start a new group, event or activity.
  • Like talking to people? You’d probably be great at helping with our community efforts or staffing fundraising events.
  • Love parties? We’d love your help to host a parent support group.
  • Got a special skill? We can always use writers, technology gurus, marketers, etc.
  • Have lots of friends? Start a support group. Head a team at the Buddy Walk.
