NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION FOR MARCH 2017 IS CLOSED. OUR NEXT VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION WILL BE IN MAY 2017. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS OPPORTUNITY.

Jeremiah’s Place is a crisis nursery and engages volunteers to assist staff in caring for children ages’ birth to six in a therapeutic environment to help minimize the effects of a stressful situation or traumatic experience. Volunteers help the staff to maintain a healthy and loving environment by providing primary care for the physical and emotional needs of the children. Volunteers take direction from staff to suit these needs.

Volunteer duties may include "baby holding," reading to a young child, assisting in an arts and craft projects, therapeutic play or other typical tasks associated with the care of young children. Light housekeeping and assisting with meal time duties may also be required. Volunteers must be willing to provide their full attention to the children while in the nursery.

Volunteers are expected to abide by our values of kindness, care, and acceptance. Jeremiah's Place is a safe space that is free of judgement. We serve children and families who are in crisis, creating an environment of healing and support.
