Help Young Children Heal from Traumatic Events
Ways to Get Involved
Facility Projects/Trash Pick-Up
Facility projects and trash pick-up are important in ensuring that The Children’s Place remains a welcoming and safe environment for all clients and guests. Facility projects have included paint touch-ups, organizing storage areas, and putting together furniture and toys.
Storytime at The Place
Storytime at The Place is an opportunity for volunteers to come to The Children’s Place and be paired with one of our seven Day Treatment classrooms for Storytime! Storytime takes place every Thursday from 12-12:30 p.m., and volunteers are invited to join us for a single Storytime–no commitment required.
Special Event Volunteers
Special volunteer projects with the children are an opportunity for small groups to get involved at The Children’s Place. Previous projects have included flower pot planting, snow cone making and cookie decorating. These activities take place during the school day, typically from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or noon to 12:50 p.m. Volunteer groups should plan to bring the supplies for their activity.
Weekly Classroom Volunteering
Our first priority is the safety of the children. Our expert staff puts a big focus on consistency for each child at The Children’s Place and we ask that all volunteers respect and understand that this is a place for children to heal as a mental health treatment agency. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we require that all volunteers wear masks inside the building and share proof of vaccination.
