The children who come to SpringHaven are provided the same age-appropriate services as their mothers. We employ a Child/Youth Advocate who works with the children individually and in group settings daily. She provides a supervised homework time and a nutritious snack each afternoon after school, except Friday. The major goal of this activity is to encourage mothers and children to 1). Develop a regular time for homework, and 2). Eat nutritious snacks and learn about healthy eating habits. There are a number of groups offered to SpringHaven children on a rotating schedule. We also are lucky to have a wonderful core group of volunteers who assist our child advocate during group time.
We are always interested in recruiting new volunteers. We believe that volunteers are our partners in this important work. Therefore, anyone who wants to volunteer on any on-going basis must complete our training program and must have a clean criminal record. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, unless they are part of an organized group, such as a church youth group, or scouts, etc. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at SpringHaven, please enter your email address below, or call the business office at (270) 765-4057 to request a volunteer packet.
