Volunteer Opportunities

Be a Volunteer

Volunteers are our helping hands, critical to our mission and allowing us to achieve so much around the house and throughout the community. We are always looking for friendly, energetic and motivated volunteers who are interested in getting involved at our Children's Advocacy Center. There are many opportunities to suit a variety of different skills and interests.

  • Community Event Volunteers
    Kids House gets invited to participate in various events throughout the community during the year. We often need volunteers to help staff the booths at these events, represent Kids House, pass out information and interact with children and families.

  • Kids House Event Volunteers
    Throughout the year, Kids House hosts events for the children and families we serve. Events are season and include a Halloween Party, Back to School Splash and Holiday Party. Volunteers are needed to help decorate, prepare materials and make these events extra special and lots of fun for every child who attends.

  • Maintenance Volunteers
    It takes a lot of hard work to jeep our facility in good shape. We are always looking for handymen and women interested in coming to lend a hand. Handyman projects include changing light bulbs, painting, landscaping, etc. and are always on our to-do list.

  • Clothing Drives for our Kids House Clubhouse
    Our Kids ClubHouse was built in partnership with the Rotary Clubs of Seminole County. We are able to accept new items to stock our shelves with the necessities for the children we serve. Clothing, shoes, socks, underwear, diapers and personal care/hygiene products are needed for infants and children up to 18 years old.

  • Office Assistants
    Helpers are always needed around Kids House to assist with numerous administrative tasks. Data entry, filing and special projects are the focus on this volunteer assignment.

  • Fundraising Committee Volunteers
    Interested in helping Kids House raise money for our children? Throughout the year, Kids House hosts several fundraising events and the support of community volunteers is invaluable to these efforts. If you are interested in helping plan events such as golf tournaments, galas, 5k runs, etc. please contact the Philanthropy Department at 407-324-3036 Ext. 266.

Frequently requested topics include: information about Kids House, child abuse prevention, what to do if you suspect child abuse and how to get involved and volunteer with Kids House.

How do I become a volunteer speaker?
