Hello there !
Looking to contribute your time and energy to a worthy cause ?
Here's Building futures with women and children (BFWC) !
BFWC is to help women and children in crisis become safely and supportively housed, free from homelessness and family violence.
Here are multiple opportunities at BFWC !
* 40-Hour Domestic Violence Counselor Training- Please send me information!
This training is offered several times annually, and is a prerequisite to volunteering at the Sister MeHome Safe House.
* Childrens Program
Four nights a week at all four of BFWCs sites we conduct a structured program of activities for our young residents. Must be 16 years old or older! Activities include arts and crafts, gardening, and cooking, and are a part of a larger curriculum.
* Dinner Cook Program
Dinner cooks provide a healthy, well-balanced meal for 25-35 residents. Dinner cooks provide all ingredients; prepare the meals at home, at their church or at another facility;
and deliver meals no later than 5:00 p.m. This is an excellent group project!
* Administrative Office
At the office we need help with such tasks as bulk mailings, copying, filing, and data entry.
* Shelter Site Projects
Activities include painting, yard work, building shelves, reorganizing our storage shed, hauling heavy items, and cleaning/organizing.
We rely on volunteer groups or individuals to provide meals, entertainment, or educational
programming over the holidays. Please read Volunteer Opportunities sheet for complete list of holidays.
