The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
If you have a passion for making a lifelong difference in a child's life please consider becoming a Volunteer Child Advocate with the Guardian ad Litem program. Child Advocates are trained and supported volunteers who advocate for the best interest of children in the foster care system. A volunteer will visit with their children at least once every 30 days, talk to those involved with the child and advocate for what is in their best interest. This position takes an average of 8-10 flexible hours per month. Please contact us to arrange to attend a no obligation orientation session to find out if this is the right opportunity for you. The need is great in Flagler County so please consider helping a child in your community. All children deserve someone to speak up for them, can you be that person?
