It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


300 N Queen StDurham, NC 27701


Community Empowerment Fund holds on-site office hours at Families Moving Forward, the largest homeless shelter for families in Durham weekly. This means that we hold 1-on-1 meetings with parents to help them reach their goals so that they can move out of the shelter and have long-term financial stability. Parents often bring their children with them to these meetings, which we love! But our meetings are best when the parent(s) don't have to worry about watching their children. This is where you come in!!

We are looking for a few amazing volunteers to play with the kids, on Thursdays from 7:30-8: 30 pm, during our meetings. The parent(s) would be in the same room and there may be an additional free volunteer from time to time to help you play with the kids. We also have toys, coloring books, crayons, and a board game for you and the kids to use. We are hoping to have a few of you so that you could rotate and only be there one to two times a month!! You must pass a background check.
