While at Serenity Place, many of our mothers start the process of earning their GED and tutors are needed in the evenings to help our mothers with a variety of subjects. We are looking for women to work one-on-one with a mother as she tackles reading, writing, and math. Get started.


Our Serenity Place graduates participating in the Lotus program can use your support as they experience all kinds of life transitions -- from living on their own to pursuing education and employment goals to successfully parenting their children. We're looking for women who are willing to be supportive and walk alongside our mothers as they chase after their dreams and try to break the cycle of poverty for good. Get started.

Skills & Services

Are you a budgeting guru? Can you transform ordinary ingredients into fun meals? Are you a healthcare professional? Our young mothers love to learn new things and probably never had the chance to learn the skills you can teach them. Make a difference in a hour!  Get started.

Helping Hands

Sixteen families live at Serenity Place 365 days a year, and we need volunteers who can help with general maintenance projects like landscaping, carpentry projects, organization and more. Projects vary throughout the year, so give us a call to see what our current needs are. Hands on projects are a great way to get your family or group involved. Get started.

Provide a Special Meal

Our women and children miss home-cooked food, and nothing makes them happier than special dishes from the community. This is a great opportunity for church, corporate, or social groups.  Your group can plan and prepare a meal and serve it to the families at Serenity Place. You will see lots of happy, grateful smiles. Get started.

Special Events

Who doesn’t love a good party? Get together with some of your friends, co-workers, or members of your organization and plan a great event for our women and children. Some ideas include hosting an ice cream social, game night, field day, or a special holiday party. Get started.

Donation Drive

With 16 families at Serenity Place, we are always in need of something, whether it's diapers, wipes, toilet paper, toiletries, or craft supplies -- check out our wish list here. Get your church, company, or neighborhood in on the fun and lead a drive to help us meet our needs. Get started.

Grant Writer

Are you familiar with grant writing? Are you willing to work on a grant on behalf of the Family Effect? This position requires someone who has excellent research, writing, and communication skills, is self-motivated, reliable, organized, thorough and timely. Get started.

Brand Advocate

Are you savvy with social media? Like, share and comment on our page. Fundraise on behalf of the Family Effect for special projects or organize an informational session at you work or home so that the community can learn more about who we are and what we do. Get started.
