What is a Client Volunteer Advocate?
It is a position at HELP were you are trained to mentor women who are facing difficult circumstances and are in need of some assistance. We will Listen, Acknowledge, Accept and Provide services that will walk along side them so they know they are not alone. Training is recommended for this position. It is a six week program that is offered twice a year.
Our fall session just finished up (see pictures) and our next Client Volunteer Advocate training/continuing education session will January 12, 2018. You can still get started and begin shadowing right away.
Thank you Dr. Carla Ludwig from Chia and Friends for joining us. Check out our Facebook page for Facebook Live from HELP's Wright Connection. /www.facebook.com/HelpPregnancy/
Volunteering at HELP has many faces!
You may be surprised to discover that people of a variety of ages and walks of life volunteer with us in the way that best suits them. Look over our suggestions below, and perhaps you will find the perfect fit - or discover a new way that you can put your gifts to good use.
West Catholic Students for LIFE use their time and talents on the third Tuesday of the month by coming in after school.
Volunteering is hard work, but it is so rewarding to be God's hands and feet!
Interested in volunteering?
We are blessed to have a wonderful pool of volunteers at HELP. We can open our doors because of the active involvement of each of these dedicated individuals. We would like you to prayerfully consider supporting this particular community of women and babies by giving some of your time, on a weekly basis to support LIFE. Here is a general description of the different areas where volunteers are needed the most:
These women are trained to mentor the young women who face difficult circumstances and are in need of guidance.
These women can counsel the Spanish-speaking clients on a one-on-one basis after receiving training, or will assist a trained client advocate with translations.
Individuals who enjoy greeting the public, taking on general office tasks such as copying, filing, sorting forms, as well as setting up new appointments for our clients are greatly needed.
This special group of women like to do the “behind the scene” kind of jobs. Some wash and sort the material goods that come into the center, while others enjoy stocking the Loving Arms Boutique, or creating layettes to be offered to the mothers of newborns.
Our sewing group, Stitches in Time, keeps us stocked with quilts, blankets, bibs and burp cloths. If you have the time and the sewing talents, we would love to hear from you.
Off Site Opportunities
We have also had many generous donors come up with unique ways to offer their time at home in a variety of ways in order that they can make a donation to us. Some of these include hosting a direct sales party in which the proceeds are offered to HELP, gathering gently used baby items from their acquaintances to drop off, collecting diapers in a diaper drive...perhaps these ideas can help spark a few creative ideas of your own!
