Volunteering



We love our volunteers!Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 11.31.36 AM

Our organization depends on a team of active volunteers. Volunteers help in so many important ways – from working directly with children, to helping with special events and clerical needs.

Child abuse is too often viewed as “someone else’s problem,” however child abuse is an issue that impacts every community member.

By volunteering at the NOCAC/Audrey Hepburn CARE Center, you can show a sense of awareness and concern that serves as an example for the rest of the community.

We appreciate any time and energy that you can give to make a child smile and feel safe again. Thank you for your help!
