The Open Door Children’s Home is currently in search of volunteers for the summer. Christy Watters, Community Liaison, says that the organization is looking for mentors to come into to the home once per week for some quality time with the kids.
Watters adds that any adult is eligible to be a mentor at the home, provided they are able to pass a background check.
Community connections are vital to the kids’ success, particularly if they do not have strong family connections, asserts Watters.
For more information, call (706) 232-6662 or visit www.opendoorhome.org. The Open Door Children’s Home serves youth ages 12 to 21, says Watters.
