How To Get Involved
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the I Can Home. As a volunteer, you are one of our most important resources, and we value your time and talents. It's one of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities, because when you volunteer at I Can Foundation not only do you enrich the life of a child and help that child but you also develop a tremendous sense of inner joy.
The Role of Volunteers
Whether you rock a baby, read to a preschool child or romp with a toddler on the playground, volunteers play a vital role in helping our children's developmental growth. Volunteers also support our social service programs, help organize donations and other fund-raising tasks. Volunteers are also needed to ensure the success of special projects undertaken by the Foundation's staff.
Making It Easy To Make A Difference
At the I Can Home there are as many ways to help as there is work to be done. Flexibility and variety are our specialties. We invite our volunteers to create their own flexible volunteer schedule. Join us for an hour, an afternoon, an entire day or more - it's up to you.
Sharing Your Talents
Are you a teacher or former teacher? A lawyer, an accountant or a public relations professional? Do you speak different languages? Do you love cooking, sewing, reading or gardening? Are you a fitness expert or an arts and crafts whiz? Whatever your skills or passions, if you're ready to share them, we want to make sure the Home and its kids benefit from them. So, please be sure to let us know how we can use your expertise and interests to greatest use in our I Can volunteer opportunities.
If you've never been to the Shelter before and plan to visit on a regular basis, we ask that you schedule a 30-minute orientation by contacting Cassandra Gibbs by phone at 1-721-547-7013. During the orientation, we'll tell you more about our mission, introduce you to our staff and children and give you a brief tour of our facility.
Many Ways to Donate
Donations are vital to keeping our doors open for the children in need. However, donations need not only be monetary; volunteers are always welcome, as are donations of goods and services in kind.
You can make your financial donations to our account at the Winward Island Bank, account number 100.955.300
Goods in Kind
The I Can Home is in constant need of supplies for our children especially the babies, as well as consumable items. Any donation is most welcome and greatly needed. If you would like to donate, we kindly ask you follow these three simple guidelines:
- Before you donate to our home, call our office at 1-721-547-7013 between 9am and 5pm. This will allow us to schedule a drop-off appointment
- Take inventory of your donation
- Plan on how your donation will be used at the home.
