[email protected] 

The [email protected] program gives children the chance to hang out with their volunteer/s in an environment in which they are most comfortable: their own homes. Together, they can bake cookies, play games, read books or do just about anything fun! With so much to look forward to at these visits, it's no wonder children wait all week for their volunteers to show up at their doorsteps. Visits last for one hour, and can be arranged to accommodate a variety of schedules. An adult must be present during all visits.
