The gift of your time to Bivona will be repaid many times over
The children we help carry the imprint of your kindness forever
Volunteers play a huge role at Bivona—they help with almost every aspect of our operation. Here are some of the ways you can help:
Help out at the Center
We need people skilled in: public relations, fundraising, event management, computer technical support, and development. Volunteers are also needed in our reception area to greet families, answer phones and help with office work.
We ask you to fill out a Volunteer Application and because of the sensitive nature of our work with children, agree to a criminal background check. We cannot guarantee that you will be accepted as a volunteer.
Please return the completed forms to:
