You can help strengthen families in your community and prevent child abuse by being a volunteer at Mesa’s Child Crisis Center. Once a week, volunteers come to the center at 604 W. 9th Street to play with children ages birth to 11 and to help staff with other work as needed.
Hours are flexible. Volunteers must be at least 16, pass a background check, attend orientation and training, and commit to being a volunteer at the center for one year.
The Child Crisis Center, established in 1981, works to prevent child abuse by supporting families through education and intervention, providing a safe place for kids to heal and grow, and raising community awareness. If you would like to help, contact Alicia Kenney at (480) 969-2308. Visit www.childcrisis.org for more information.
