Ways to Help

COME JOIN OUR CAUSE! Robin’s Nest welcomes volunteers in various capacities. Although volunteer work directly with children and families is very limited due to privacy expectations and requirements, there are ways to put your energies to work to assist the work of our center.

  • SUSTAINABILITY ACTIVITIES.  Since we are a non-profit with no regular funding streams, fund-raising is critical to our success.  Sustainability volunteers work alongside RN Board Members to raise operating funds that provide vital victim services to children.  Three primary EVENTS that we sponsor each year include the  Victory Classic Golf Tournament, Holiday Tour of Homes, and Spring Soiree – and it requires a strong group of volunteers.  Join us!
  • PARTNER FUND-RAISING.  In addition to regular fund-raising events, we invite local organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals to organize and implement an event, with approval by the Robin’s Nest Executive Director, that raises funds to support services at Robin’s Nest.  Examples include the Caldwell County School System’s annual “Change for Children” campaign and the “Hudson Hit Parade of Stars” event each fall organized by college student Dillon Warren and his parents Bill and Angie Warren of The Gold Mine. Every dollar makes a difference, and the ideas for ways to raise funds are endless. Call 754-6262 for information about how to sponsor a fund-raiser that benefits Robin’s Nest.
  • ADDITION TO YOUR MISSIONS LIST.  Several churches, agencies, and local foundations have added Robin’s Nest to their list of mission donations annually- and we are grateful!  We will be glad to make a presentation to your group about Robin’s Nest.  We also have a list of specific types of supplies that we need at Robin’s Nest, which enables some groups to collect items for our center. Contact 754-6262 to ask for a presentation by our Executive Director, Mrs. Ervil Anderson, or to ask what specific supplies are needed at a given point in time.
  • HEALING HELPERS.   Opportunities exist for a limited number of volunteers to work on a regular basis at the Center in various capacities – such as welcomer, family room supervisor,  medical evaluation aide, or non-offending caregiver support group assistant or food provider.  Most people serving in these roles require formal application to the Executive Director, criminal background check, and approval by the Board of Directors.

Volunteers who will be working in the facility, even if not in close relationship with child clients, may also be asked to submit to a background check for the safety of our children and families.  If you are interested in volunteering at Robin’s Nest, click on the “Contact” link on our HOME page to contact our Executive Director or call Robin’s Nest and ask for Mrs. Ervil Anderson, 754-6262.
