contribute time, energy, expertise and skills and are an important and integral part of Five Acres. Make a difference in the lives of the children and families served at Five Acres and join us as a volunteer today:

Five Acres Children’s Guild

members contribute throughout the year supporting projects for the children and special events that benefit the children of Five Acres. The Children’s Guild are seeking new members who are interested in becoming “angels” to Five Acres children by providing birthday parties, monthly activities, and other events throughout the year.

What I find most rewarding about the Children’s Guild, is the opportunity to team up with other amazing, caring adults, and combine our energies to bring joy into the lives of children who desperately need happiness and hope,” said Michele Dooley, President, Five Acres Children’s Guild.

Special Friends

have the opportunity to develop a special one-on-one relationship with a Five Acres child through regular visits and activities. Forming that bond with a Five Acres child is one of the most rewarding experiences for volunteer and child alike, and part of our treatment program building on the care and strength of the child on their pathway to safety, well-being and permanency.

Corporate Volunteers

are the perfect partnership with Five Acres: we can provide your employees with the opportunity to give back to your community while creating a team-building, enriching experience and you can maximize your corporate commitment to giving and volunteerism. We welcome corporate volunteer involvement and will work with you to become involved with Five Acres, whether it be a one-time occasion or building a lifetime partnership.
