The Children’s Playroom provides therapeutic childcare for children while their parents meet with counselors, attend workshops, or utilize other services offered by our Family Support Center. As a Playroom Caregiver, you’ll help parents with young children receive the supportive services they need and help children build valuable social and emotional skills.


Volunteer Responsibilities:

• Supervise playtime, read stories, lead crafts, and serve snack for children up to age 12 – primarily babies, toddlers, and preschoolers – while their parents are utilizing services at the Family Support Center

• Sort donations – toys, children’s clothing, baby furniture, etc. – and display them in a donation area for parents to claim

• Complete 30-minute check-in phone call with Playroom staff once per month

In general, Playroom volunteer shifts are available Monday – Thursday, 9:30am – 12pm and 12pm – 2:30pm. Volunteers must attend an initial 4-hour training on a weekday evening, pass a criminal background check, and pass a TB test.

Once trained, volunteers are expected to spend 2.5 hours per week volunteering for a minimum of 6 consecutive months.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to participate.
