Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our children’s home. There are many ways to help us out, whether it’s your small group doing a food drive for our pantry, procuring items for our annual auction, working odd jobs around our campus, or spending time with our children.
If you, your church, organization, or civic group would like to volunteer to do a group project on our campus that does not involve direct contact with children please contact our office at 505-898-5520. We will be happy to talk with you about how you or your group can serve ACCH.
Some possibilities for you and your group:
