Lego Bots
These Lego Bots were made by children in our care!

Our Emergency Sanctuary is a safe place for children to land when they have just come into care. They stay with us for up to 72 hours and in that time our staff and volunteers ensure they are safe and having fun! Each shift at the Sanctuary is different with activities such as arts and crafts or fields trips to the zoo or aquarium, etc!

With the support of paid staff, direct care volunteers are primarily focused on providing supportive, compassionate care through play, meal preparation, field trips, and assistance with daily living requirements. They assist in ensuring that the children at the Sanctuary are cared for and engaged in appropriate recreational activities. Duties may include direct care of children, preparing meals, housecleaning, and otherwise helping to keep the Sanctuary Program running smoothly.

Volunteers are provided with training and support needed to succeed in this role. We have a fairly extensive onboarding process, but our Volunteer Manager is here to help you through it! The Emergency Sanctuary experience is such a fulfilling role to give your time to.
