Do you have time or talents you’d like to share with us? Consider volunteering at St. Gerard House. 

We rely on more than 800 volunteer hours per month to help run our programs. These valuable hours allow our trained behavior technicians to spend more time in direct services with children and families. 

These are our current volunteer needs:

Connect Program: TUESDAYS, September 12 - November 14, 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm. 

Grotto 1: Come play with our kids and help them during snack/lunch from 10:30 am -12:30 pm. Or come and  9:00 -10:30 am or 12:30-2:30 pm to help us with programs. This need is ongoing (year-round). 

Family Group Night: We need your help with childcare once a month, 3rd Monday of every month 5 - 7:30 pm. Come eat dinner and play games with special needs kids.
