What can you do to help ChildSafe? Volunteers are the heart of non-profit agencies; they help ChildSafe carry out the mission of serving abused and neglected children in our community. Give the most important gift of all, your time.

Recurring Activities:

  • Direct Service with Children: Greeters and friendly faces help us provide a safe and welcoming environment for our kids - help them with play activities while they are waiting for a forensic interview or therapy session.
  • Administrative Support: Assist staff by completing needed tasks or help prepare for an upcoming event.
  • Garden Volunteer: Help us maintain our therapy garden and outside areas through various activities.
  • Animal-Assisted Therapy: Registered therapy dogs and their handlers volunteer with children in our lobby.

Occasional and One-Time Events:

Opportunities vary as activities are scheduled by staff.

  • Coordinate a Drive:
  • Invite your friends and family to collect and donate new needed items for our Rainbow Room.
  • Donate holiday gifts for Santa’s workshop, Easter Baskets, Thanksgiving baskets and other holidays.
  • Back to School supplies are needed for our school supply store in August.

Holiday Events:

  • December - volunteers at Santa's Shop to help with gift wrapping,
  • August - Back to School Supply Drive or in March by distributing Cardboard Kids during distribution weekend.

Cardboard Kids:

  • Raise awareness for ChildSafe and bring attention to child abuse by decorating a cardboard kid during our Cardboard Kids Campaign.
  • Distribute Cardboard Kids at an area mall during distribution weekend.
