Who can be a volunteer? Anyone can volunteer his or her services at the CACECM upon successful completion of the written volunteer application process. The process includes an application, personal references, a pledge of confidentiality, civil and criminal background checks and an interview. Adults ages 18 and older can have direct contact with the children.

What are the volunteer opportunities? Because of the range of professionals working at the CACECM, we offer a wide assortment of volunteer opportunities. We are always open to suggestions from our volunteers on how to make our program better.

How much time is involved? Due to the sensitive issues that bring a child and their family to the CACECM, each volunteer must attend a brief volunteer orientation. Once volunteers have been trained, they will work with the Family Advocate to develop a schedule, if applicable. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, some with very flexible schedules. Because the CACECM relies on the volunteer program, we ask that anyone considering giving their time, understand it is a serious commitment.

Volunteer Needs:

  • Greet and welcome children and their family
  • Offer a snack, drink and help child with handprint following an interview
  • Assist non-offending caregivers with paperwork
  • Play with children following interview.
  • Assist with clerical duties
  • Plan or assist with a fund raising event
  • Cleaning
  • Assist with community awareness events

The children who come to the CACECM like to play, laugh and have fun like all children do. The CACECM is a safe environment and alleged perpetrators are not allowed on the premises. The CACECM team, including volunteers, seek to create a caring and supportive atmosphere for all who visit the CACECM. We value our volunteers as they make a huge difference in the lives of children who are victims of abuse. We work together to start a new, happier chapter in their lives
