Volunteers Needed for A Chance to Shine Event

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: BHcare

We need your help!

Be part of A Chance to Shine, the biggest fundraising event of the year for the BHcare.

We are seeking volunteers to work 3-hour shifts (if you want to help longer, that's great) checking in walkers, welcoming guests, supervising family games, setting up and cleaning up, selling raffle tickets and general help.

This is a great opportunity for high school students to get community service hours!

Thank you in advance for your dedication and service.


We are thrilled to announce that we’re hosting one, unified event to benefit all BHcare programs, which include The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services, the Hope Family Justice Center, the Parent Child Resource Center, Alliance for Prevention and Wellness, and BHcare’s mental health, and substance use resources. A Chance to Shine will raise funds and awareness for our life-saving programs and celebrate the amazing communities we serve from the Shoreline to the Valley.

Join us on Saturday, June 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Quarry Walk in Oxford, CT, where we'll kick off with a morning walk dedicated to victims and survivors of domestic violence followed by a family fun celebration. Bring your own blankets and snacks or grab a bite at one of the several eateries on site. We'll have live music, kids' activities, food trucks, Touch-a-Truck and some special surprises. All funds raised will support the thousands of Connecticut residents we serve in 85 towns.

Along with raising funds, we will shine a light on not only the services our friends, families and neighbors need but, on the survivors, and thrivers who continue to persist and better their lives.

BHcareprovides a comprehensive and integrated system of care with wrap-around services for adults, children and families struggling with mental health, substance use, domestic violence and other health-risk behaviors. The BHcare family of programs includes: BHcare Valley and Shoreline Clinics, The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services (UCDVS), Parent Child Resource Center (PCRC), Hope Family Justice Center, and Alliance for Prevention and Wellness (APW).
