Douglas C.A.R.E.S. has places for volunteers who share our passion for helping abused and neglected children and their families recover. Our new building will allow us to further develop our volunteer program. From assistance with day-to-day operations like office help to serving on our board of directors, event committees and fundraising efforts, we can match your interests to our needs!

Check below for volunteer forms. Submit your completed application to the Douglas C.A.R.E.S. office or email it to staff@douglascares.org.  All on-site volunteers must pass a criminal background check.
