How Can You Help?

Casa de los Niños volunteers:

  • Work with infants and children in the Early Education Center, opening in early 2019
  • Support our programs through special projects
  • Volunteer in groups or classes with children, teens, or young adults

Do you want to do a special project or volunteer as a group?

Consider a donation drive to help provide a child with basic needs! Putting together some of these Care Packages will provide immediate help:

BAG OF FUN
Developmental toys, books, family friendly games, board games

TEEN SELF ESTEEM BAG
Hair products, toiletries, skincare, journals, pens, art supplies

NEW MOM SUPPORT PACKAGE
A diaper bag with baby blankets, infant toys, diapers, wipes, diaper ointment

GOOD NIGHT BAG

FAMILY SUPPORT BAG
Gift cards to buy groceries, toiletries, basic household supplies from places such as Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Safeway

BACKPACKS
with new school supplies

Families are also in need of diapers, sizes newborn – 6.

For more information on ways to do a drive, contact Amada Mendoza at amendoza@casadelosninos.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can teens and children volunteer at Casa de los Niños?

Volunteers who work with children must be at least 16 years old. However, many wonderful donation drives and care packages are put together by children and teens who want to help other kids!

Do I need special certification to volunteer?

If you will be working with children, you will need a fingerprint clearance card.

Does volunteering require a consistent commitment?

That depends on how you want to volunteer. Volunteers in the Early Education Center do keep a consistent commitment that fits with their schedule. Some groups and classes may also require a commitment for the duration of the sessions.

How can I sign-up to volunteer or get more information?

Please complete the form on our Contact Us page (select “volunteer opportunities” from the drop-down box), and let us know how you’d like to get involved. (If you completed a form at the volunteer luncheon, you do not have to complete the on-line form.) We look forward to working with you!
