Catherine’s Kids is actively looking for volunteers. We have a policy of matching the volunteer’s skill set with our needs. We do when appropriate, conduct background checks before allowing volunteers to spend time with our children.
We also welcome volunteers who are willing to spend time with the kids and provide the children basic loving care, reading and play time. The children admitted to Catherine’s are selected for being the most needy and most vulnerable. In many cases they have not been held in arms since birth, exclusively because of their medical condition or malformations (that we correct with surgeries). We have seen how love, genuine care and human interaction produces extraordinary transformation in our children. We at Catherine’s welcome volunteers that have a heart for the most needy children and will provide during their visits the love and interaction so much needed since birth and throughout the critical formation years.
