Tu Nitido Children and Family Service
Health Services & Support Groups
Volunteers are the heart of Tu Nidito Children and Family Services. We have more than 150 dedicated people who volunteer their time in different ways:
Support Group Volunteers:
Facilitate peer support groups for children, teens and adults whose lives have been impacted by serious illness or grief. Work with an assigned age-group, “littles” (ages 3½-7), “middles” (ages 8-12), and teens (ages 13-18) or adults to provide comfort and support through structured talking circle questions and activities. Separate support groups are offered for:
Children who are grieving the death of a loved one
Children who are diagnosed with a serious medical condition
Children who have a parent diagnosed with a serious medical condition
Volunteer commitment is two week-day evenings a month from 5:45 – 9:00pm (one week-day evening a month for support group for children diagnosed with a serious medical condition.)
Other Volunteer Opportunities:
Special Events – Special event volunteers assist with fundraising and community events. Individual requirements are dependent upon the assignment.
Office Assistant– Assist in answering phones, managing our library, providing computer support, running errands, preparing materials and other duties associated with running an office. Office volunteers can choose any weekday for 3 to 4 hours per week. Individual requirements are dependent upon the assignment.
Board Members – Like all non-profit organizations, a Board of Directors governs Tu Nidito Children and Family Services. Board members commit to a three-year term of office.
