Help with Resource Room:
Our large Resource Room provides an opportunity for families to "shop" for free for their foster children! We have clothes, diapers, wipes and children's equipment on site at our office. Volunteers sort, organize and inventory donations in a way that allows families to obtain clean, safe, and appropriate items needed for the children in their home. This service opportunity is available 9am - 5pm, M-F.
Preparing Meals for Families:
Volunteers can help prepare meals (fresh or frozen) for families! Getting a meal is such a blessing to families who receive a new placement, sibling group, or are walking through a tough season in their foster care journey. Donating food gift cards so our staff can purchase meals for families is also a great support! This service opportunity is available 24/7.
Volunteer groups can make a big difference at our offices in Edmond or in our foster care neighborhood in Luther, OK. Volunteers can help wash windows, plant flowers, pull weeds, and play with our children on the playground, basketball courts, and splash pad. At the office, volunteers can help us prepare for upcoming events + holidays, write birthday cards, and sort inventory in our Resource Room. This service opportunity is available during normal business hours and weekends.
Host a Drive
You can impact the lives of children and families at AHF through a donation drive! One of the most tangible ways to bless a family is through meeting practical needs. Hosting a diaper/wipes/gift card drive is a huge step in that direction. A business or small group can often get great results from $5-$10 donations from each person. We are happy to provide you with flyers, posters, and boxes for collecting items. This service opportunity is available year round.
Child Care Volunteering: Support Groups
Support Group Volunteers meet at a local church in OKC every 3rd Tuesday of the month to play with kids while their foster parents get much-needed prayer, support, and training hours. This is the perfect service opportunity for those wanting to volunteer with our foster children, and a child friendly space for the whole family to serve + have fun! Each support group lasts 2 hours and is held in the evening.
Anna's House and our foster families benefit in many ways through volunteers! Not all are called to be a foster parent, but we are all called to do something. Volunteers of various ages and backgrounds may join us through weekly, monthly, or one-time opportunities, and groups may partner with us through projects and events. Youth volunteers (under age 18) can assist our agency with donation drives benefiting the kids in care or prepare for special events and holiday parties.
Whatever your skills or talents might be, we'd love to visit with you about how you can change a child's life forever as an Anna's House Foundation volunteer. Those who work unsupervised with foster children will be background checked and go through a formal orientation.
