Volunteer Opportunities

Fighting child abuse is a community problem that requires the involvement of all.

Whether you are an individual or business or other group, Sunflower House might have just the way that you can get involved in protecting children from abuse.  However, please note that due to COVID-19 volunteer opportunities are limited.  See below for more information.

Friends of Sunflower House

The Friends of Sunflower House is our flagship volunteer group that meets on a monthly basis and works hard to raise awareness of child abuse in our community through various community outreach events and opportunities. Friends also put on our annual Pumpkin Palooza event in October. It’s a great group that is always looking for more hands and hearts!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Due to COVID-19 and the cancellations of community outreach events, Friends of Sunflower House is not currently meeting regularly.

They’re responsible for implementing an annual fundraising event and also serve as ambassadors for Sunflower House and our programming, introducing people to the mission and work of the agency by inviting them on tours.
