There is virtually no activity or special event that is not made better or more efficient by the volunteers' efforts. We're grateful for our volunteers' willingness to share their time, talent, and special gifts with us. Volunteers play an important role in helping us keep our tradition of providing excellent service to the community.

It has been said that volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless. We know ours are.

Above all, we know from experience that volunteers help make a difference in the lives of children and families we serve. We consider Children’s Harbor volunteers our partners.
