VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: The children at Midnight Mission’s Homelight Family Living Program in Inglewood look forward to every Tuesday night when L.A. Works volunteers spend time with them playing games, doing arts and crafts projects (from Play-Doh to rockets), reading books, and just having fun while their parents attend classes and counseling sessions. The seemingly simple act of interacting with the children is a highlight of their day and can be of yours too!
IMPACT: Your support of The Midnight Mission helps to provide a path to self-sufficiency for men, women and children who have lost direction. Our volunteers make it possible to deliver the life-changing services that people experiencing homelessness so badly need. We always appreciate those willing to volunteer their time with us, and your support helps to provide a path to self-sufficiency for men, women, and children who have lost direction.
REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers for this project must be at least 6 years of age. Any volunteer under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian this Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. Minors under 13 years of age will also need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Federal Law prohibits volunteers under the age of 13 from registering on-line. To sign up a family member under the age of 13, sign yourself up and then email the project leader directly to let her/him know.
