Homeless Children's Playtime Project

  • 1 person is interested

Every year, approximately 2,000 children experience homeless here in the District. The Homeless Children's Playtime Project's volunteer Play Rangers spend one evening a week bringing the transformative power of play to children living in family shelters in D.C. Play is proven to helps children learn and heal from trauma, and the Homeless Children's Playtime Project needs YOU today!

The mission of the Homeless Children's Playtime Project is to cultivate resilience in children experiencing family homelessness by providing and expanding access to transformative play experiences.

We are especially looking for volunteers in SOUTHEAST D.C. as we expand our programming to Wards 7 and 8!

To become a volunteer, you'll complete two training sessions and undergo a background check. You can find and register for upcoming training dates on our website here. The next dates are April 11, April 15, May 6, and May 15.
