At Mary’s Home, we offer intentional support and resources to our resident families in order to help meet any area of need they may be experiencing. The residents are occasionally invited and encouraged to attend events that are outside typical business hours, resulting in the need for child watch support during some evenings and weekend hours. These events may include going to a workshop for personal or vocational development, attending a Mary’s Home Alumni Brunch on a Saturday, or even having an evening out with other Mary’s Home mothers to steward community. These are rare opportunities for our resident mothers to practice self-care and be more involved in healthy community. Mary’s Home is building a Child Watch Team so the residents have the freedom to engage in these meaningful events. The Child Watch Volunteers are responsible to provide dependable, safe, secure, and nurturing care to the resident and alumni children. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who love engaging with children to directly care for and lovingly interact with the children.

  • Child Watch shifts primarily occur evenings and weekends, but may occasionally be offered during the day Mon-Fri.
  • Time commitment: 3-5 hours a month

Our volunteer application process includes a virtual tour, application, references, volunteer handbook receipt & acknowledgement, interview, and background check.

We began in 2011 with the Dream Centers Women's Clinic. The Women's Clinic offers free medical, behavioral health, and a suite of wrap-around services to uninsured and underinsured women and teens ages 13-64.

In 2015 Dream Centers Mary's Home opened. The mission of Mary’s Home is to provide single-mother families experiencing homelessness a faith-based transformational community in which to gain supportive relationships, holistic health, life skills, economic self-sufficiency, and community resources. Mary's Home is a two to five-year program to enable single-mother families to exit homelessness permanently.
