Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We provide a loving, Christian, learning environment for children whose parents are either currently living at Grace Centers of Hope and enrolled in our one year life skills program, or have graduated from our one year program and are now going to school or working. Our staff members are committed Christians, and are committed to providing quality care for each child at our center. We will not accept any government funding, therefore we are trusting that God will use volunteers and donations to provide for the needs of our center. Thank you for partnering with us to meet the needs of our precious little ones; they are truly the innocent victims of homelessness and addiction, and they deserve the VERY BEST!
Types of programming offered
Our programs are designed to create an atmosphere which encourages individuality, imagination, creativity, and curiosity. We focus on the process of learning rather than the product. We will track the growth and development of each child in 5 key areas: physical, social, emotional, linguistic, and cognitive. We offer full-day childcare for newborns up to age 2, and preschool for our 3 & 4 year old children.
Change for Children
Change for Children is a popular outreach opportunity for schools, churches and other youth programs that teach young students about Grace Centers of Hope and how we serve children who are victims of homelessness. Change for Children is a flexible fundraising program that supports our Hands of Hope Childcare Center and directly impacts the youngest of the homeless in our community.
Curricula that educators have included Change for Children in include:
? National Reading Awareness Month
? Community Involvement and Volunteerism
