Volunteer at The Maine Children's Home!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of The Maine Children's Home. Throughout our history, thousands of dedicated men and women have assisted us with a multitude of needs from fundraising and outreach to mentoring and organizing special events. From direct work with the children to indirect work with our communities, donors and board, volunteers are the reason The Maine Children's Home has been in operation for well over a century.

These individuals selflessly volunteer their time, knowledge and talents to The Maine Children's Home and the people it serves. They do so with little recognition, but with the great satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to make a difference.
