Working with the Community to protect, empower and equip homeless and disadvantaged women and children.
Community's Child is a nondenominational Christian program committed to providing homeless women with infants healthy alternatives to abuse, poverty, addictions, and hopelessness. The program offers homeless women and their infants a safe, compassionate, yet structured living environments. At Community's Child, women acquire the education, skills training, employment opportunities and support services, necessary to break the patterns associated with homelessness.
Since it's a one day commitment, it works with schedules that are busy or people who aren't sure to jump right into volunteering. It was hefty work with carrying a lot of the bags but free food and the sense of accomplishment was enough to bring me a smile.
Community's Child is a wealth of opportunity. There is SO MUCH to do and such a great team of people to help you with each task. I found them on this site and just called them up, asking to do something related to Psychology for grad school applications. I'm now up to my eyeballs in things related to Psychology that I'm set for my applications! The director even offered to write me a much needed letter of recommendation!
I really enjoy volunteering here and hope to be involved well after my current projects have been completed. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
