Volunteering

Help us make a difference in the lives of mothers and children in West Virginia!

We need and welcome volunteers whether you can give a day, a few hours each week, or help us throughout the year. Our volunteers are teens through senior citizens, from all walks of life, who are passionate about our mission to help mothers and families in need.

Our volunteers learn about issues, obstacles and circumstances faced by needy families.  Our volunteers typically develop empathy and a sense of self-satisfaction, purpose and pride in helping needy families overcome their difficulties.  Our volunteers also achieve new skills, meet new friends and participate in the planning and operation of a grassroots social service organization.

Gabriel Project client assistance is provided by volunteers called “Gabriel Angels”, working through an ecumenical network of churches across the state.  Churches are the heart of our organization, providing services and mentoring to clients in their area. Churches and their congregations also collect special offerings and organize diaper drives and other events to support their local Gabriel Project.

We also welcome school and community groups as volunteers.  These groups are needed to gather and sort baby items, help with fundraising events, and perform other essential tasks.

Individual volunteers are needed and welcome as well.  We encourage individuals who support our mission to volunteer at the Gabriel Project chapter offices or local client service sites.  Individual volunteers serve clients, provide clerical support, and perform other essential tasks.  Individual volunteer opportunities may also be available on chapter advisory commissions and/or the State Board of Directors.

For more information about the many ways to become involved with the Gabriel Project of West Virginia, contact your nearest chapter or call the state office at 304-205-5865.
