Direct Care Volunteering
In House Support Team
Direct care can take a few different forms. One way you can give direct care is by joining our In-House Support Team. Since Bethesda House is not a fully-staffed shelter, but rather a home that gives mothers and babies a safe place to thrive, we depend on faithful volunteers like you to provide needed support to both moms and babies during the day and evening. What might that look like? Our programs work best when we have support here for mornings, afternoons, and evenings. And depending on the time of day, the support may look a little different, but it will always focus on modeling and encouraging good overall practices and life skills while prioritizing Christian values. Support could include infant care, encouraging good habits and routines for moms, teaching basic meal planning and prep skills, or reinforcing goals that moms and leaders have set together. Programs are tailored to each mom depending on their set goals and with your support, we can maximize their opportunity for success. See the BH Support Team information below to see which time would work best for you and don’t hesitate to contact us for more information!
With a lack of public transportation on the South Shore, we rely on volunteers to drive the moms to and from their schooling, doctors appointments, etc.
There are numerous opportunities to use your God-given talents for direct care volunteering that can fit just about anyone’s schedule, depending on your availability. Everyone’s help is valuable!
Please note that these positions require that you sign the Bethesda House Statement of Faith.
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ’It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
