Volunteer Opportunities

Holiday Parties: Host an on-site party for residents living in our New Haven shelters. Bring some treats and plan some games and activities for a celebration of whichever holiday you like, Halloween, Valentines Day, Fourth of July, etc…We would love to hear your ideas!

Shelter Meals: Provide a meal for 15-20 women at Martha’s Place or 10 women and their children at CareWays Shelter in New Haven. Dinners are usually served around 5:00 pm and are always greatly appreciated.

Host a Drive:  Gather your school, team, town, troop or friends and host a drive to collect the New Reach “item of the month.”  We can help you with flyers. You can deliver your items and get a tour of one of our facilities to see how your hard work directly impacts our clients. Great for team building!

Beautify Our Premises: Roll up the sleeves and help improve our facilities  with landscaping, refurbishment or cleaning projects.  A wonderful group activity with immediate gratification for you and for our clients!

Holiday Adoptions: Spread some holiday cheer by adopting a family this holiday season. Make Thanksgiving or Christmas food bags or join our Adopt-A-Family project and donate to make a family’s Christmas wishes come true. Ask us how you can give a family in need a holiday they will remember.

Day Of Beauty: We all could use some pampering at times. Host a day of beauty at one of our women’s shelters and perhaps provide a manicure, pedicure, hair cut/style or massage. Help us remind our remarkable clients that they are beautiful inside and out!

Office Support: We can always use help sorting, filing, labeling and generally organizing and answering phones. Helping in our offices can help our dedicated staff stay focused on our mission and our clients.  Lend a helping hand!
