Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult volunteer at all times.
You will have the opportunity to help children in shelter not focus on their homeless situation and just be kids by utilizing toys, games, puzzles, books, craft supplies, and our outdoor play area. Also, there is the opportunity to plan an activity of your choice.
We offer this role to fulfill hours requirements as well because you have the opportunity to provide an outlet for the children so they are not focusing on their present homeless situation. You will have the opportunity to have one-on-one interaction with each child and learn about their background maybe not similar to your own.
Check with your teacher or professor to be sure that volunteering at Haven House will qualify you for class credit. If you have questions or would like any documentation about your volunteerism, contact Chequoya Spearman.
This is the only volunteer role which counts toward a class or project requirement.
