Thank you for your interest in St. Ann’s volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers are a vital part of our mission to heal, strengthen and inspire vulnerable young families.

Here are a few ways for volunteers to become involved:

  • Professionals in their field can make a presentation to young mothers on topics such as employment, financial competency, or another life-skill related topic.
  • Two or more experienced teachers can organize an arts and crafts activity for the toddlers in our Child Care Center.
  • Civic, religious, social, academic or employee groups can plan a social activity for families Tuesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. or on a late Saturday morning before noon. You can get some ideas from our Volunteer Services Coordinator.
  • Add your name and contact information to our Volunteer Waitlist if you would like to make a regular time commitment as an Evening Child Care Volunteer (Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
  • We are also accepting names to add to our Volunteeer Waitlist for our Mentoring Program. Female volunteers are matched with young mothers living at St. Ann's To help strengthen their self-confidence and interrelationship skills.
