Our residential programs provide safe and supportive housing to young people as well as mothers and their children in need of a safe place to live. These programs in Camden and Gloucester Counties provide residents with a stable foundation and strengthen their ability for self-sufficiency. Here are some ideas for activities that can be led by volunteers in our residential programs:

  • Assist with playtime while mothers participate in educational workshops

Volunteer Needs

Holiday Gift Project

Volunteer support is needed to raise funds which will be used to purchase holiday gifts for children in the care of Safe & Supportive Housing programs, and families in critical need. You can use your talents to fundraise and spread the word. Some examples include

  • Leading a yoga class for a fee that will be donated
  • Hosting a bake sale in your workplace or school
  • Creating arts or crafts to sell
  • If you’re a business owner, giving a discount to folks who make a donation

Companies can lead a matching gifts campaign to encourage employees to get involved and double the impact of their individual donations.

You can also host a collection of gift cards that will be provided directly to families so they can purchase a holiday meal and gifts for their children.

If you would like to help share the need for holiday gifts or host a fundraiser among your friends, school, or workplace, we can help you. Contact
