Collins Home Volunteers
Volunteers are an invaluable part of who we are and what we do.
Collins Children's Home believes that children can best be healed through relationships with caring, well-trained staff, and volunteers.
The strength of our ability to do this has always been through the generosity and dedication of our supporters in the community and their commitment to a standard of quality care.
From this community of committed supporters, we seek to attract and retain dedicated volunteers to enhance and supplement our programs and services.
Please be assured that what you do as a volunteer is no small task to be taken lightly, because you hold in your dedication the ability to change lives, including your own.
