Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Family Chowder exists to promote family preservation in Greater Cleveland because families build people and people build communities. We are dedicated to sponsoring and connecting high risk families to affordable respite and other resources needed to enhance a positive family experience. High risk families: Disabled family member Family member with a physical or mental illness Poverty Divorce Death of a family member High conflict or high risk behavior In Court System or family member re-entering society
Family Chowder is jsut starting. We hold the belief that with the right rescources and support, families can help themselves through a crisis that is short term, or long term. We are working hard to develop the website to provide 24 hr access to free online help and learning resources.
We are organizing events such as " Parent Hacks:ABC" and "The Power of Mom" and "The Power of Dad" the events are geared to giving parents a respite along with a networking opportunity to grow their sphere of support, and of course, food and a dash of parent pep talks that include family leadership skill building.
The organizaiton is not just geared toward parents, but also to family caregivers and other famly members who are considered to be the "glue" of the family. There will be other events that are for different family leader audiences.
Family Chowder has 1 founder (Exec Dir) and 3 volunteers to start. No one is working with pay - just passion. We need to build the board and would like to work with 3 or 4 other volunteers to start with.
The vision of Family Chowder is also to provide experiences to volunteers that are skill building, social, and network worthy.
