Your time is one of the most valuable gifts you can give a child.



Our dedicated volunteers are essential to the ongoing operations of The Darling Home for Kids, and as such we recruit, screen and train qualified and caring volunteers from the community. Our volunteers are vital members of our team, enhancing the services provided by staff, allowing us to provide the best programs possible for our clients and their families.

Volunteers can work directly with children and families, lend their expertise on boards or committees, assist with fundraising, share their passion for cooking to provide nutritious meals for the children and families or support our administrative team.

Corporate volunteer days are also scheduled throughout the year where teams of up to 40 people can spend a day at the Home giving back to their community.   There are limited spaces available for corporate volunteer days each year.  Please contact us for more information.

Join our team today!   Your commitment of time, whether it is a few hours each week, or a day or evening each month, will make a difference in the life of a child.
