Dave and Ava Badovinac have been volunteering at The Darling Home for Kids since November 2016. The pair runs errands for us, bakes, and reads to our kids on Saturday mornings.

Seeing the Darling Home Through the Eyes of a Parent & Supporter

Published on: 13 September 2016 / Category: Volunteering
In November 2015, when my colleague and I first visited The Darling Home for Kids, we didn’t know quite what to expect. We knew next to nothing about the Home, beyond what we had read on The Darling Home for Kids website. The purpose of our visit was to determine whether our organization would be a good fit to provide The Darling Home for Kids with a corporate philanthropic donation... read more

Softchoice Brings Real Spirit to DHK!

Published on: 14 March 2016 / Category: Volunteering
This year we had the opportunity to welcome a new corporate volunteer group into our Home – Softchoice (http://www.softchoice.com). Over the past few months two groups from this company have come to decorate for the holidays and we couldn’t have been happier with the level of enthusiasm, care, and eagerness they exhibited! They are already looking forward to coming back in 2016 to continue being involved with the Home.

Our Angel of the Year

Published on: 27 November 2015 / Category: Volunteering
Approximately 3 years ago I was a shy and quiet teenager who had only been in high school for a year. Like many other teenagers, I spent a lot of time on the computer doing…nothing in particular! However, one day, that aimless browsing through the internet turned into a wonderful blessing in my life. I honestly can’t quite remember how - but I suddenly found myself on the website for the Darling Home for Kids. After looking through some pictures and learning more about it, I decided to sign up to be a peer volunteer, not knowing just how much this decision would shape my life.... read more

Bedtime Harp Therapy - An Instrument of the Angels

Published on: 24 August 2015 / Category: Programs
I LOVED my time at the Home on Friday. Do you know it was my first time in the Snoezelen room? Funny story… I started off playing in the family room for all kids before they went to bed. Everyone was fine with the exception of the sweet little boy sitting to my left, very tiny and oh so cute. As the TV volume was turned down, he connected that his TV was taken away and he became very upset. The lovely staff member sat with him, tried to soothe him and figure out what was happening...I played quietly. read more

There is No Such Thing as a Typical Day

Published on: 10 August 2015 / Category: Volunteering
I’ve been volunteering at The Darling Home for Kids for over a year. There really is no typical day at DHK! As a volunteer, I’ve done things that I normally don’t do in my quiet, reserved life. For example, walking with the kids to the bottom of the hill and counting the number of times we can get a car to honk at us by shouting and waving! Not only did the kids have a blast, but some individuals stopped to say hi! read more
