Opportunity Details

Kid Activities

Housing Families First assists families experiencing homelessness to build their capacity to live productively within the community. On Wednesday evenings, the residents have classes, during which the children in the house are in need of supervision and activities. Volunteers will engage these youth in an activity each month, who may range in age from infant to teen. This is semi-unstructured time, and may include everything from crafts and games, to homework help, to changing diapers, to just hanging out. Volunteers may also be asked to assist with other tasks, such as cleaning rooms to prepare them for families and sorting and organizing donations.

Parking is in the lot behind the building.

All volunteers who plan to attend must be registered. This includes youth. If the post indicates adults must be present, youth and adults must register using the team functionality. To learn more about our team functionality, please view our Volunteer with a Group page.

If allowed on the project, any youth volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a parent-signed youth waiver to the project.
The waiver can be found after sign up on the confirmation page or by visiting our Volunteer with Youth page.
