Volunteers are the heartbeat of Foster Village! As a volunteer, you will be the hands, feet and face of a community of support, helping foster families know they are not alone and meeting practical needs at the moment when support is needed most.
From delivering items to families to helping plan our gala, there is an opportunity that you’re your gifts, passions and skills! Explore our volunteer opportunities and click below to apply. We would love to have you be part of our village of support!
Volunteer Opportunities (Individual and Group Sign-Ups)
You can help with planning and preparing fundraisers and events throughout the year. Prior non-profit fundraising or event planning experience a plus. Flexible schedule and time commitment.
Volunteers are needed occassionally to help sort and organize donations at our HUB storage space to make packing Welcome Packs and fulfilling other needs easier.
We need help delivering Welcome Packs, beds, car seats, and other basic necessities to children entering foster care, as well as folks on standby for when various needs arise. Volunteers must be willing to drive to our storage HUB in East Memphis to pick up donations and deliver to foster homes in the Memphis area. Commitment and hours are flexible; compassion for children and families walking through hard circumstances is a must. Once you attend volunteer training and your background check is approved, volunteers will be added to a group notification app where you'll be notified of needs as they arise and have the ability to volunteer based on your availability.
Foster Village Memphis hosts monthly Caregiver Gatherings where we provide childcare so parents & caregivers can have a couple devoted hours to connect. We also occasionally partner with churches to offer Parents Night Out where we help to provide childcare so foster families can get a relaxing evening, a date night or just some time for themselves. We are always looking for extra helpers with a desire to love on these precious children for a few hours while their foster parents take a well-deserved break.
If cooking and serving others is your gifting, then we would love your help in blessing our families! We offer the creation of Meal Trains for families who have just accepted a new placement, as well as providing meals at our monthly Childcare Gatherings. Meal Train volunteers simply claim an open slot and make (or pick up!) a meal and deliver to the family or our gathering.
