Clean Kids Playrooms & Create Safe Space for Therapy (age 8+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Help transform unfortunate beginnings into successful futures. In the state of Oregon today, there are about 13,000 children in foster care awaiting a permanent home. Most of these children have experienced multiple losses and severe trauma from physical or sexual abuse and neglect. Kinship House awakens hope in these children's hearts for a safe and loving "growing up family."

We find that children who receive therapy to help heal and cope with grief and loss adjust much better to their new lives. Part of that therapy involves our therapeutic playrooms and yard. Art, doll houses, dress up, and make believe allow these children the chance to express their feelings. In the last year Kinship House has had more the 500 children come through its door. And you can imagine what a playroom might look like after having 500 children play in it!

With the help of people like you we can provide a clean, safe place for these children to play and assist their transformation into healthy, contributing members of society.

Come help us clean surfaces, sterilize toys, inventory game pieces, discard dried up markers and make sure all toys are operational in our therapeutic playrooms.

Thank you for your interest in being a champion for Kinship House kids!
