How to Volunteer

PREPARES is a parish-based ministry that is completely volunteer-based. Our volunteers devote as much or as little time as they feel they have to give in support of the families we serve. Some get involved indirectly by helping with diaper-drives, collecting donations and holding fundraisers. Some choose to have a more personal relationship with the families we serve and become trained companions. Whatever way you may choose to volunteer provides much needed support for vulnerable families.

Volunteer Voices

Our volunteers frequently tell us how much their own faith has been strengthened by their involvement with PREPARES. 

“I want more people, particularly in my parish, to be excited about PREPARES . . . It’s something that I think God really wants.”

“My view of the Church has changed. I see it not only as a place to pray, go to Mass and receive the sacraments, but as a second home.”

“Meeting this family has changed my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to live out my faith.”
