Volunteer & Make a Difference
Volunteers are the most critical element for ensuring we are able to continue ministering to the young women who find their way to our door. Because people in the community choose to say I CARE and then step up and put those two small words into action we are able to use their time and talent to get these women onto a good and prosperous road to success!

We would love to have a person from each church in the area to be our point person for that church. This person would be responsible for talking with the pastor/priest/minister and/or secretary about Fontebella. There may be events at your church that the ladies at Fontebella can assist with. Additionally, this volunteer would keep the members of the church aware of the events going on at Fontebella so that we can develop strong relationships and partnerships with all the churches in the area.
If you are savvy in Microsoft Word, Excel, research, data bases – then we need your help. We need to maintain data in formats we can easily retrieve. We can use help in typing in data and developing formats to keep our information. At times we need help in stuffing envelopes or preparing large mailings. We need detail oriented volunteers to help with these items.
We hold a few major fundraisers each year. Fontebella cannot exist without our fundraisers and the fundraisers cannot exist without volunteers willing to help with the legwork and organization of each of these projects. Please consider sharing your creative ideas with us to make our fundraisers successful.
Some positions may require background checks and fingerprinting, especially if they involve direct contact with guests.
