Volunteer and Help Begin Their Healing.

The Child Abuse Network depends on the dedication and compassion of volunteers to sustain its critical services and programs. Every year, volunteers donate generous gifts of time, goods and money to the Children’s Advocacy Center.

As a CAN volunteer, you choose how to be involved. Volunteers serve as child advocates, translators, community educators, fundraiser volunteers and daytime office assistants.

Child Advocate

Would you like to read to a child? Construct a Lego castle? Color, or play Chutes and Ladders with a child who is just learning to count? Then we have a volunteer job for you!


Translators are in demand at the Child Abuse Network. If you are fluent in another language, a donation of your time and spoken or written talents will help CAN communicate better with our children and families.

Community Education

CAN depends on community support to help stop child abuse. Your help enables CAN to offer numerous community education activities. Volunteers are needed to speak at various child abuse awareness engagements, man booth displays at community events, and help educate legislators about child abuse issues.

Fundraising Events

Fundraising events are held throughout the year to raise money for and community awareness of the Child Abuse Network. Volunteers are invited to assist with planning, public relations and staffing of the events.


CAN greatly appreciates help with its ongoing general office tasks, such as reception/greeting, replenishing brochure information, copying and computer entry.
