Group Opportunities

Cottage Sponsor A Cottage Sponsor is an extension of the live-in cottage family. The volunteer opportunity allows for a family or group to assist the cottage family in the following ways:  assistance with occasional meals, birthday celebrations, resources support, or to help relieve stress from our house parents by treating them to a hotel-stay during their time off or providing a gift card for a dinner date. 

Fellowship & Fun A Fellowship & Fun volunteer is usually created by a group, such as a business, church group, etc that has a passion for planning exciting activities such as parties (on or off campus), craft days, camps, or large meals for 50-60 students and staff, etc. If you love creating lasting memories for children this may be the option for your group. 

Resource Drive – A Resource Drive is the best way to serve if you aren’t able to make a trip out to the ranch. This position is a valuable extension of our support network. We are in constant need of items to stock the commissary, and the advancement team would love to get you or your group signed up with a resource drive to meet these needs.
