For the Love of Life!




   Volunteers are absolutely vital to the success of Mary's Shelter! Our staff will do everything they can to ensure that your volunteer experience will be positive and rewarding.


   The following is Sue's account of her volunteer experience:

   "Our communities have many areas of concern for which any of us can volunteer our time. Since retirement, I still have a full calendar with family, church, friends and other activities. My volunteer time is limited, so I am very selective about where and when I give my personal time to others. Not only do I look for where I can best use my talents, but I look for places of service where I feel I can make a difference with what time I can give. Mary's Shelter is that place for me. I have often heard the famous quote from Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." At Mary's Shelter, I receive satisfaction that I can apply my skills, talents and interests to the lives of young women who are striving for a successful, independent life style."


   Like Sue, you can help the young, pregnant women we care for become the best they can be.


   We can use your expertise as a teacher, data input person, handyman, carpenter or driver. We need volunteers to care for the babies and other children while their mothers are engaged in training, and to teach our mothers household skills such as meal planning, cooking, smart shopping, or sewing. Volunteers help with event planning, fund raising, marketing and other administrative services. We need volunteers with trucks to pick up donations of furniture, etc. and strong volunteers to help us when we have to move heavy items at the shelter.

  If you can help with yard maintenance, e.g. mowing, edging, weed-eating, etc., or pressure-washing of the building, sidewalks and parking lot, it would be much appreciated.!


  Right now we could really use expert help in managing internet resources - for our web site, for keeping our supporters informed via email, and also for social media.


   If you are talented as a speaker, we would certainly appreciate your participation in our Speakers' Bureau - we are often asked to provide a speaker for churches, as well as charitable, social and business groups. Whatever your interests, profession and experience, we can put you to work! Click here for a background screening form which you can print, complete and mail in to us.


   If you need additional information, do not hesitate to call us at 986-6200 or toll-free, 1-866-823-4674.
