Project CATCH and Circle of Parents are programs of the Salvation Army of Wake County. Circle of Parents is a child abuse prevention support group for parents with a partner program offered for the children. The Children's Circle is currently in need of volunteers on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm at the Salvation Army shelter. Children are separated into groups according to age, and age appropriate social and emotional skill building activities are planned in advance and are facilitated by the staff and volunteer leaders. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and complete a volunteer application in advance. Volunteers should come prepared to engage with children who have experienced the trauma of homelessness and are currently living in a shelter. Most of all, Children's Circle is a FUN time for the volunteers and kids! This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of an at-risk child. Group occurs on a weekly basis, and volunteers should be prepared to make a weekly (or at least twice a month) committment of at least six months.
