One of the goals at Angelica Village is to foster healthy growth through the achievement of housing partners' personal goals. This may include, but is not limited to, education, careers, and entrepreneurship. However, a roadblock many families may face is access to childcare.
We are seeking childcare volunteers to spend quality time with the children of Angelica Village. We invite you to use your creativity, but this may look like coloring, facilitating nature walks, playing games, and much more! This may include some light cooking/prepping of meals and diaper changes. We hope this is a time for the children to interact and build relationships with trusted adults.
We are hoping childcare volunteers can spend 3 - 4 hours with the child(ren) at a time but are welcome to spend more time as well! Volunteers can sign up for below shifts, but there are some opportunities for further shifts on an on-going basis as the family sees a need. Typical volunteer shifts fall on nights and weekends.
Current specific times slots are:
First Saturday of every month from 2:00 - 4:00
Every other Sundays from 4:00 - 5:45 pm
Please apply for more information & opportunities! Contact us if interested.
Through love, care, and sustained mutual support, Angelica Village nurtures conscious community living spaces where people with special abilities, families seeking refuge from war and violence, individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and fellow community partners receive what they need and share what they can.
Children and Youth Seeking Refuge from War: Youth are welcomed into the community as long-term community members and as the 'adoptive’ children of partners responsible for their direct care. Children grow up in the community until they are ready to transition fully into adulthood. Children will be supported socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically, as well as with education and generally adjusting to life in the United States. Once children have moved out of the direct proximity of the home they will continue to have the community as an extended family for their future.
Unaccompanied Youth and Families Exiting Homelessness: The community provides a place of refuge and support for three to five individuals and/or families whose circumstances have put them out on the street. This aspect is aimed at individuals who are wanting to engage in a larger community and parents who are working to create a stable environment for their children and are seeking support and guidance in their efforts. Households live in the immediate community for eleven months to two years. During this time, they are provided with comprehensive support including food, shelter, a therapeutic environment, emotional support, childcare, financial support, help finding employment, educational support and assistance finding and furnishing a permanent home. Once families resettle in a new home, they will remain integrated and supported by the community for as long as they desire.
