1st Way has several opportunities for those interested in getting involved. The more help we have, the more help we can provide to women in need.
Volunteering at the center:
Counselor: Provides compassionate counsel to clients. Provides information and a non-judgmental ear for all your concerns (training is provided by 1st Way).
Clothing Room: Sorts donated clothing, makes layettes and packages items for distribution to clients as needed.
This is an ongoing need that requires a dedication to care in an often forgotten way.
Volunteering outside the center:
Fundraising: Helping with fundraisers which may include carnation sales, baby showers, baby-bottle drives, banquets, grant inquiries, and any other fundraisers.
Public Relations: Making contacts to set up speaking engagements or displays, speaking or representing 1st Way to various groups.
Collecting Donations: Picking up baby and maternity items from churches, schools, individuals, and resale used clothing stores.
Sewing/Knitting: Making blankets, quilts, and baby clothes for newborns.
Newsletter: Assistance with developing our monthly newsletter.
Prayer Support: Faithfully praying for 1st Way that God would send us more strength, more patience, more love, more resources, and more people! Also praying for our clients. (and of course financial assistance)
Financial Support: Becoming a 1st Way sponsor helping with our monthly financial needs.
