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.
At Hope, we support children and families to achieve safety, optimum growth, independence and joy.
Founded in 1957, The Hope Institute for Children and Families is a nonprofit center providing educational, residential and health services to children ages 5-21 with multiple developmental disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Hello, my name is Briley Tanner and I am a senior at Springfield High. I was really happy to see this volunteer opportunity because I strongly support the Hope Institute and what they do for children with disabilities and I would want nothing more than to help out. I have performed at Hope Institute with the Springfield Ballet Company many times and always had a great time seeing the excitement we brought to the children. So again I would love to help out with anything you have available.
