ARE YOU A LEGO ARCHITECT? COME PLAY WITH HOMELESS CHILDREN!
Did you know: at least 1 out of every 24 Massachusetts children is homeless at any given time? An even higher proportion of Massachusetts children experience homelessness over the course of a year, for a total of at least 82,000 homeless children and youth in the Bay State.
Horizons for Homeless Children is seeking volunteers to interact and play with over 500 children living in over 50 family, teen parent, and domestic violence shelters in Greater Boston. A commitment of 2 hours a week for 6 months is required. We offer daytime and evening shifts, so there is likely to be one that fits your schedule. It is a rewarding and fun experience for everyone involved. The next training session will be on August 11 and 12, 2008 from 6-9 pm both nights.
