Prepare and Serve Dinner

Every night of the year, we have a volunteer group prepare and serve dinner to our newest residents, those in the Intake Access Center.  These residents have been here anywhere from 1 day to 2 months. This is a great opportunity for families (including children) and small groups. Approximately 20 – 45 residents (half are children) are living here. You can sign up to serve dinner here:

Kid Zone Volunteers

We need volunteers for our Solutions’ Kid Zone. Volunteers will play with children in a group setting and keep them safe, while their parents attend recovery meetings and mandatory program training. This is important work! This is a great service opportunity for teens, college students, clubs, church groups or businesses. If interested in becoming a Kid Zone volunteer, please contact Cynthia at Cdzwigalski@solutionsforchange.org

Special Events/Holidays

Solutions for Change aims to celebrate each holiday with our residents.  Through decorations, holiday specific meals and targeted activities, we let our families know that they are supported by the community and “worthy of great things.”  Contact Cynthia at Cdzwigalski@solutionsforchange.org to receive information on how you can be involved.
