At Parents Helping Parents, volunteers help us do more for families in need!

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart. ~Elizabeth Andrew

Interested in getting involved? We will value your time and talent and embrace you into our family!

  • Help us put on our annual fundraising event that happens every spring! There are planning roles as well as “day of event” help needed.

  • Attend community events and distribute info about PHP to invite more people to use our services.
  • Use your writing or technical skills to assist with our website!
  • Put your creative skills to use to support social media outreach by working with us on marketing.
  • Collaborate on fundraising campaigns with our development team.
  • Support the administrative team with office and tech support projects.
  • Host/Co-Host or assist with a support group for families with a specific special need or common interest. With large groups, it’s helpful to have more than 1 person to facilitate meetings. It’s always good to have one person assist the host by interacting with attendees through chat or texting.
  • Review our downloadable, e-packets in English/Spanish/Vietnamese to be sure all links are working!
  • Do you have an idea for something not listed?  Please share it!
