Volunteer Opportunities:

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)

work to ensure that the best interests of the child are being represented in the courtroom. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

South Coast Food Share:

SCFS serves as Regional Food Bank in Coos and Curry counties and is part of the Oregon Food Bank Network; A group of partners, programs and agencies committed to the belief that no one should be hungry. ​

SCFS has various areas in which to volunteer including Warehouse support, Dry Food Sorting, Property maintenance, Snack Pack assembly (benefiting local school children) and more. Contact SCFS to find out how to volunteer: 

SMART Reading Program:

SMART was founded on the idea that communities play an important role in supporting children’s education.  We support PreK through third-grade children in Oregon to develop the motivation, self-confidence, and reading skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. SMART volunteers in communities across our state contribute their time and talents to help us achieve this goal. Learn more about the SMART reading program and volunteer opportunties: 

Or contact your local school for volunteer opportunities!
