Five Acres Children’s Guild

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

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.” — Michele Dooley, President, Five Acres Children’s Guild.

Special Friends

Special Friends develop a one-on-one relationship with a child at Five Acres through regular visits and activities. Forming that bond with is one of the most rewarding experiences for volunteers and children alike, and a core element to our treatment program to build the child’s strengths on their pathway to safety, well-being and permanency.
