EMBRACE REFUGEE BIRTH SUPPORT: Create Refugee Mom Birth Beads
Help a refugee pregnant woman time contractions, relax, and ease anxiety by making her a birth bead bracelet. You can do this easy craft at home and involve your entire family. We provide instructions. You pick out and purchase the materials and create some beautiful bracelets!
EMBRACE REFUGEE BIRTH SUPPORT: Volunteer to Support a Refugee Mother
Many of the women we serve need rides to their doctor appointments. We provide a high level of PPE and maintain strict protocols for transporting someone in your personal car. More than ever, the women we support need someone to assist them in getting prenatal care. (Flexible days and times.)
AGRICULTURE AND NUTRITION: Get Dirty at the Jolly Avenue Garden
Have a green thumb or want to learn how to have one? Come help us water, weed, and grow vegetables for families and care for the Jolly Avenue Garden space. (Flexible days and times.)
FOOD BOX DELIVERY: Pack and Deliver Food for Families
Come to Clarkston and work with a small team to pack food boxes from the Atlanta Community Food Bank and deliver six-eight boxes to families in our community. (Tuesdays from 2:45-5:00pm.)
REFUGEE FAMILY LITERACY: Pick Up & Deliver Food from Local Schools
Lunches are available for any family with a child in DeKalb County, but many of our families do not have a car and are unable to access this service. Volunteer to pick up food for several families from a local school and drop it off outside their homes. (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 11am-1pm)
YOUTH PROGRAMS: Help Elementary Students with Assignments
Volunteer for a shift in our outdoor education space and assist children with digital learning assignments. (Wednesday from 9:00am-2:00pm.)
