VOLUNTEERS ARE VALUED
Volunteers are an invaluable part of who we are and what we do. From our community of committed supporters, we seek dedicated volunteers to enhance and supplement our programs and services. Volunteering is not a small task to be taken lightly, because you hold in your dedication the ability to change lives, including your own. We cannot provide the support to children and families without the help of our committed volunteers. What you do as a volunteer, whether you choose to give a day or an hour, is time well spent.
Become a Volunteer
Four steps to becoming a volunteer:
- Apply by inquiring online or by calling (813) 864-1537. Be sure to indicate your specific volunteer interest(s).
- Sign up to attend a tour to learn about the dynamics of working with the children in our care.
- Individuals must be 18 years or older to volunteer and must complete a comprehensive background screening that will include local, state and federal law enforcement checks.
- Attend a Volunteer Orientation session to learn about our policies, procedures, and expectations for volunteers. Orientations are held monthly at our Memorial Highway campus and last approximately one hour.
*Children's Home Network does not accept court ordered community service volunteers who have felony backgrounds or abuse charges of any kind. All other court-ordered community service volunteers will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
