We love our volunteers

Make A Difference

We were founded in the spirit of joining together to give back to the community. Our passionate volunteers give generously of their time, talents and hearts to continue the legacy.

Our goal is to provide volunteers with an enriching experience. We do this by individually matching your interests and availability to our needs. We have many ways you can help. Get to know us and learn about the different and rewarding opportunities available.

Some examples include:

  • Working with our children in the classrooms
  • Assisting in our administrative offices
  • Helping with special events
  • Seeking donations in the community

Volunteers make it possible for us to accomplish all that we do. Explore our featured opportunities on this page or openings by category below. Join us today to make a difference in our community!

As a classroom volunteer, I watch these children learn with the touch of their hands, hear the laughter and realize they are not the only students who ‘See Life Differently'.


Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Mary

Classroom volunteers are instrumental in ensuring our children feel secure while supporting our professional team’s educational and therapeutic goals. Mary Kelly’s dedication goes above and beyond. She has shared her warmth, compassion and love for Anchor Center for three years, volunteering twice a week.

“I have been very fortunate to have had Mary as a part of our classroom. Her extra hands have made it possible for me to actually lead the class,” said Callie Spotted Elk, TSVI.

Mary addresses each child with patience and is always ready to help with a smile on her face. As a recipient of the Virginia Deal Williams Award for excellence in voluntarism, Mary embodies the spirit of enthusiasm, dedication and willingness to serve beyond expectations.

She brings thoughtful insights to her role, of which Callie shares: “She allowed us to process and collaborate on important issues. The children have developed a relationship with her and seek her out for meaningful interactions.”

Beyond the classroom, Mary helps behind the scenes at events, with one-time volunteer needs and as part of our Anchor Night Watch program. We couldn’t do it without her or all of our volunteers – thank you!
