Direct Care Volunteering
The mothers in Bethesda House model Christian life after the volunteers that they interact with daily. Direct care volunteers are needed in a variety of ways by teaching them life skills in areas from parenting to cooking. 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. The evenings are family-style in Bethesda House: meal planning, dining and enjoying one another’s company are made possible by our volunteers. Babysitters are needed while the mothers attend bible study or childbirth classes. There are opportunities for direct care volunteering to fit just about anyone’s schedule.
Please note that some positions require that you sign the Bethesda House Statement of Faith. If you would like to work directly with mothers and babies, you must sign up for a volunteer training session, which are held quarterly.
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.’
