Five Acres Children’s Guild

As our flagship volunteer program, Children’s Guild members are a key element to our children’s treatment team. They contribute throughout the year by supporting birthday parties, monthly activities and special events that benefit the children living at Five Acres.

The ALLY Program

The ALLY Program (Adults Lifting Local Youth) start their volunteer journey as members of our Children’s Guild. From there, you’ll be partnered with a child at Five Acres to develop a one-on-one relationship 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.
