Village Volunteers provide supportive home visits to Brattleboro-area families during the early months with a new baby!
What does a Village Volunteer do?
We show up to help in the many ways a family needs during the early months at home with a new baby. From holding the baby, to pitching in with light housework, to playing with older siblings, to simply providing a listening ear and companionship, there are many ways that a Volunteer can help out after the baby’s birth. If you are interested in becoming part of a community support network for families with new babies, this program is for you!
What is the time commitment in volunteering?
Village Volunteers are typically matched with a family to visit for two hours, once a week, over a period of twelve weeks after the birth of the baby. You may also spend time getting to know the family before the baby’s birth, if the family would like that!
How can I get started?
Our next Volunteer Orientation will be held on February 15th, 2020. During your time at the Orientation, you will learn the ins and outs of how to assist local perinatal families during this precious and wondrous time 🙂
