Volunteers are essential members of the Village! Your skills can help a family as they travel the road of parenthood. See some of our volunteer opportunities below, and please reach out if you have questions or other ways to help.

Home Visit Volunteers

Donation Delivery Drivers

Sometimes Village Closet items need a little extra help getting from point A to point B.

Drivers support the Village Closet and Home Visit program by picking up donations and delivering critical supplies to families lacking transportation. Drivers choose what area they are willing to drive to, and sometimes they will meet up with other drivers to get items to their final destination.

Outreach and Administrative Volunteers

Outreach and administrative volunteers support our small staff in the operations of the organization. Assistance from our volunteers allow us to serve more families effectively.

Some tasks are as simple as hanging flyers or delivering brochures to partner agencies, assembling family welcome kits and resource guides, proofreading documents, calling families to check in, or writing birthday cards.

Other tasks may involve working on special projects for our outreach and development team, researching information on resources and statistics related to maternal health, or helping to organize a special event.

Do you have a special skill like web design, grant writing, or bookkeeping? You can use your skills to serve the mission of It Takes a Village through one-time or ongoing projects.

Student Internships, Clinical Rotations, & Community Service Hours


Nursing, public health, development, and other student interns support outreach and our program operations. Past projects have included creating a domestic violence awareness campaign, researching the value of home visiting programs (and doing home visits), initiating a partner agency program to get critical supplies into the hands of at-risk families, and doing diaper, formula and backpack drives. Topics and projects are flexible and based on the students’ course of study or class curriculum.

High School

Students requiring community service hours, scouting projects, national honor societies, and community service clubs like Project 360 and Key Club have volunteered at the Village Closet and hosted diaper, formula, toy, and coat drives. Students 14 and under need a parent or guardian present while volunteering; students 15-17 need written permission from a parent or guardian.

Community Service Hours

Does your workplace offer time off for volunteering? Do you need to complete community service in exchange for receiving state benefits? Volunteering can work around your schedule.

Corporate Volunteers and Community Groups

We welcome business and church groups, as well as volunteer clubs like Kiwanis and Rotary. We can even set aside special volunteer days just for your organization!
