We are always accepting volunteers, but only hold volunteer orientations twice a year.

Our Mission at The Settlement Home for Children is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. The Settlement Home offers a variety of services and programs to individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect- our programs include a Residential Treatment Center, Group Home Program, Transitional Living Program and Foster & Adoption Program.

Current Needs:

One on one mentorships.

Youth Mentors:

We need volunteers to serve as mentors to our female residents. Volunteers are essential to helping children from hard places that have experienced a breach in trust and care learn how to develop healthy relationships with other individuals, particularly adults. Volunteers are an essential part to the continuum of care that helps children realize that outside of the walls of The Settlement Home are still genuine, safe people in the world that care.

You can provide hope and love in a child's life by becoming a mentor.

Volunteer Groups: Facilitate special events and activities on campus for the children, such as carnivals, field days, arts and crafts projects, sporting events, performances and workshops. Currently preparing for our annual QuinceaƱera.

Garage & Estate Sale Volunteer:Help with sale preparations in our warehouse on Mondays from 9 a.m. to noon. Great for large group and teens!!!
