Groups wishing to lend their time, energy, and helping hands can support La Casa de las Madres’ mission and programs in a number of ways. Special events and one-time projects can engage groups for just a few hours or a day.
La Casa also relies upon volunteer support to conduct outreach and help us keep our confidential shelter and Drop In Center tidy, organized, and well maintained. Group volunteer opportunities are organized on an as needed basis and vary depending on the season and availability. Past projects have included an overhaul of our clothing closet, painting and gardening projects, spring cleaning, resume or skill building workshops, journal decorating, meal or celebration preparation.
Please for more information, questions, or to share your group’s ideas for involvement!
Other Group Giving Opportunities
Can’t carve out volunteer time to give to La Casa? Organize an event, donation drive, or item drive with your friends, coworkers, or community group. Also, group giving opportunities through our Adopt A Room and Adopt A Family programs enable participants to help on their own time by gathering and donating goods to benefit the women, teens, and children we serve.
Each year, more than 2,500 women, teens, and families pass through our doors. Your support will make a difference!
Raise Awareness: Building a Healthy Future for Teens
Since 2002, volunteers have beaded tens of thousands of beautiful purple bracelets that carry our powerful Girls Got Each Other’s Backs teen dating violence awareness campaign message. Families, clubs, and businesses have come together year-round to participate in this social and creative project at our Drop In Center. Today, we are revising the Girls Got Each Others’ Backs! campaign to reflect a national shift in the color signifying anti-teen dating violence efforts. A refreshed ORANGE campaign will soon be revealed! In the meantime, we invite local community members and organizations to help us distribute the remaining purple bracelets across the Bay Area! If you are interested in this group project, today! Support is the accessory that never goes out of style.
