The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We change lives for the better. In treating the disease of addiction we help heal women, children, families, and the community. Join us and see the incredible difference you can make.
We are a private, non-profit, residential treatment facility for women and their children. We offer comprehensive services, not only to the women, but to their children and families. Many women come to us with long histories of abuse/trauma and addiction. We treat each woman as an individual and tailor her treatment program to fit her specific needs and the needs of her family. While there is county funding for the woman's treatment (as limited as it is), we do not get any additional funding for the children and families that we serve. Our most pressing needs for volunteers are in our children's program. We have a beautiful, state of the art childcare center that has been funded through private donations.
