Signs of Hope Camp Volunteers
Join us on a local mission trip and serve at Help One Child’s Signs of Hope Camp. This week long summer camp for foster and at-risk children takes place at Mission Springs’ Frontier Ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
A home-cooked meal can mean a lot to a child that has been removed from their home. Help One Child volunteers cook scrumptious meals for the children and teens in residence at various group homes throughout San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Learn more.
Live scanned volunteers are needed to give parents in our network a well-deserved break. Sitters may volunteer on a regular or as-needed basis; they may serve one family or multiple families; they are always free to say, “No, I am busy.” Sitters may give parents a night out, a free Saturday, or a little time for themselves.
