Do you enjoy helping others, being creative and feeling great about your work? We couldn’t do everything that we do for our residents without the help of Volunteers. We are always in need of support from the community; both individuals and groups. Below are a number of ways that you can give your time and talents.
Our Board of Directors oversees the policy and financial health of Mother House, as well as provides leadership for our special event fundraising. They meet on the third Tuesday of every month from at 3pm in Boulder. Are you the type of person who enjoys planning and working on a team? We’d love your help as we expand our Board and expand our programming at Mother House.Apply Online
Our Big SIS mentors create a supportive relationship with our residents. They give support and acceptance to our expectant mothers and their new babies. A Big SIS visits one-on-one with a resident, either at Mother House or off site at least once a week. This requires a commitment of 2 to 5 hours per week, for the time that the resident is at Mother House (usually around 6 months) as a minimum. Many of our Big SIS’ have kept contact with their resident long after she leaves Mother House.Apply Online
Are you a “fix-it” kind of guy/gal and enjoy getting your hands dirty? We always have a need for yard work, shoveling snow, fixing things around the house, cleaning out the basement, etc.. We’ve been in our house since 1996 and it often needs maintenance, painting and deep cleaning.Apply Online
Our Fundraising Angels love to be philanthropic and they are self-starters when it comes to helping. If you enjoy hosting events or asking for support, this is for you. Personal Campaigns (wedding and birthday giving in lieu of gifts), Personal Events (jewelry parties or clothing swaps) and Community Events (neighborhood walks or sports tournaments) are wonderful ways to assist us, while sharing information about our program. We will be happy to bring you marketing material so that you can be successful.Apply Online
Do you enjoy planning and attending fundraisers? We can use your help with planning and executing events. These tasks range from small to very large ones; writing thank you notes, being a committee chair, soliciting auction items, preparing food, creating decorations, etc… We need as many people as we can to help make our fundraisers a success!Apply Online
Do you enjoy cooking and being social? Our Supper Club gets together to make a meal (either at home or in the Mother House kitchen) and then shares it with our residents the first Monday of the month. Sign up for one month or more, depending on your schedule. This is a great way for 2 to 3 friends, a church/civic group or co-workers to share fellowship with residents and support their choices. Our residents look forward to this interaction every month and you’ll probably get to hold a baby while you’re here. It’s especially appreciated during holidays because most of our residents are in need of extra support at that time.Apply Online
Do you work or volunteer for a business or agency that could help our moms at Mother House? Are you an expert in a topic that might help them transition into their new life? Do you have a craft or talent that you’d like to share? We are always looking for new ideas for our weekly presentations at Mother House.Apply Online
