With the help of our dedicated, generous and supportive community partners and volunteers, Terra can ensure that the holiday season is a wonderful time of year for teen parents and their children.
During an average week, Terra volunteers contribute over 100 hours toward our programs and services to support teen parent families. Our volunteers give their time to assist with:
We welcome the increase in individuals and businesses who volunteer with us in December — this is especially important because we need additional helping hands to host holiday parties and other events for participants, however, we need volunteers and support from the community throughout the year. We encourage you to consider helping us during the early months of the New Year.
One of our goals for 2020 is to provide lunch daily for young moms at Braemar School, and we are hoping that businesses and community groups will join us to ensure that access to a nutritious lunch, during the school day, is no longer a concern for students.
Our volunteers get to directly experience the joy that comes from seeing how they impact the lives of our young families. As a result, several of our volunteers have been with us more than five years, and a few others have been with us nearly 10 years. Volunteering with Terra is an investment in our current and future generations.
