About

Share the Care Volunteers are apart of our Mommy Respite Program. This individual will provide respite time for the hardworking and brave moms who stay with us. It can be hard to manage children in a "perfect" family setting - we all know 'kids can be kids’. Imagine how hard it is for mom’s to take care of their children in a communal living, new and scary environment that is not their own home. Behaviors of children who stay in our shelter can change due to the unfamiliar, new and scary environment.

Share the Care Volunteers provide respite to these mothers, so they can participate in support groups and other healing opportunities. This opportunity is flexible and could look different depending on the volunteer’s interest/skill. Activities could include arts and crafts, sports, story time, games, group exercise, baking, stress relief/management activities, etc. Activities can be provided by our Children’s Counselor or volunteers can coordinate their own ideas.

We are asking that anyone interested in this position be able to make a commitment for a minimum of three months since
transitioning people in and out is hard for our kids! This position is also limited to the times are support groups are
offered (see below).
