Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
In a world where the rights of children are an issue, we believe that every child has a right to live and develop in a permanent nurturing family. However, for many children in this world, this is not a reality. In many third world nations, for example, hundreds of children are left to the care of overcrowded and understaffed orphanages, where the daily needs of the child are easily overlooked. Malnutrition, disease and death prey upon these innocent lives. It is the purpose of Hand In Hand to provide the necessary medical, dental, emotional and nutritional care for these needy and deserving children of the world, until such time that these children can be placed in permanent homes. In addition to caring and planning for foreign children, Hand In Hand recognizes needs of children within the United States. It is therefore our desire also to provide whatever services and programs we can, to facilitate children’s needs within our own community and to assist in locating permanent homes for waiting U.S. children. Hand In Hand stands ready, with a capable and loving staff, to assist in the placement of children from newborn to 16 years of age, regardless of the child’s heritage.
For the last 39 years Hand In Hand has been helping people find their way to children who are desperately in need of parents. We have placed more than 9,000 children in loving homes throughout the United States. Hand In Hand is a Christian-based, non-denominational adoption agency, Hague-accredited and licensed to place children throughout the United State.
Hand In Hand also supplies ongoing support to the families through country-specific support groups and cultural training sessions, quarterly newsletters, and annual agency picnics and holiday parties. Motherland Tours are taken with adoptees, once they are teenagers, who desire to return to their homeland to be in touch with their roots. As the young people testify, these are very rewarding and life changing for them.
Words are important but the SMILES of the children tell it all. An orphanage cannot be the ultimate for a child. Children need a home and loving parents to call their very own. As one walks through an orphanage one cannot help but see the pleading looks and the little arms extended for love. What better place for a once abandoned child, than to be placed in the arms of loving parents who will call that child their own forever.
