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.
We currently have enough volunteers for Tuesday and Thursday nights. Check back in March for some openings the end of the school year. The Children and Teen Treatment Programs at the Children's Justice Center serve children, teens, and families who have been affected by sexual abuse. These weekly groups are run by licensed clinical therapists and provide opportunities for families to learn skills, manage emotions, and enhance their personal safety after experiencing a trauma. Volunteers are needed to set up rooms, sign in families, help with children during group sessions, and contribute to the overall therapeutic atmosphere. Volunteers are needed each Tuesday from 3 pm to 8 pm and each Thursday from 4:30 pm to 8 pm. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, please call Kelli Stout at (801) 851-2433 for more information.
