Volunteers Offering Inspiration, Community Encouragement & Support
All volunteers are invited to join VOICES. We meet monthly on the 3rd Thursday from 5:00-6:30 PM at Liberty House. This is a fun time to meet other volunteers, stay connected, share ideas, and support Liberty House while working on small projects.
There are five sections in the garden. We are looking for two volunteers to oversee each section. The job does not require you to be a gardener (but helpful if you are one!)
- Visit the garden weekly in the growing season and routinely in the winter (2/month).
- Inspect that plants are healthy, and the section has no debris or need for irrigation repair.
- Do some needed weeding.
- Contact our Garden Captain when you need help or advice.
- Meet with the Garden Captain and other garden volunteers at planning meetings (2/year).
The Facilities Team are an informal group of men, women or teens who are able to give one Saturday a year to work on a facilities related project at Liberty House.
Thank you for considering volunteering for Liberty House. We cannot serve the children and families of our area without your help.
Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Adrienne Christian at 503-540-0288 or email her using our contact form.
"Volunteering for Liberty House is so purposeful. What a sense of accomplishment playing with a child whose life would look so much different if they weren’t able to come to Liberty House."
"The hour-and-a-half monthly commitment fits nicely with my busy schedule, while giving me the opportunity to volunteer for special events when I have time. It is wonderful to be supporting a much needed and important organization."
"I hope that by my small efforts, The Children's Garden will continue to help heal so many people in the years ahead."
