You Can Help Jeremiah’s Place

Every year too many young children come into harm’s way when parents do not have safe, reliable childcare while families are experiencing a crisis. Jeremiah’s Place provides a safe and supportive solution. We offer temporary shelter for children aged 0-6. Jeremiah’s Place is staffed by trauma-informed caregivers and social workers.  Children’s length of stay is determined based on the needs of the family and availability of care.The services are free and available 24 hours a day.
Thank you considering a gift to Jeremiah’s Place. Each and every contribution helps keep children safe in times of crisis. Your gift allows us to provide all of our services free of charge at a time when families need us most.

Donation Drive Checklist

You Can Knit

Jere Bears

Please consider knitting some stuffed bears (that we call Jere Bears) for Jeremiah’s Place. Each child at Jeremiah’s Place receives a Jere Bear as we have found that children who have their own toy to cuddle settle in better and quicker than those who have nothing. At the end of their stay, each child leaves with their own “Jere Bear”. They are to machine washable and have no loose pieces that can cause injury.

Jere Bear Instructions

No-Sew Blankets

If knitting isn’t your thing, feel free to try your hand at making a JP No-Sew Blanket. Our simple instructions will walk you through seven simple steps to create a bright, colorful blanket that will help comfort the children that come to stay at Jeremiah’s Place.

It’s incredibly hard to verbalize how appreciative I am. Leaving my children with anyone is hard and I don’t do it often – it’s awesome to know that when I need to get something done or be without my children it is possible.

You Can Volunteer

Childcare Volunteers

Our Childcare Volunteers work with the children and childcare staff by providing emotional and physical support by creating a safe and loving space for our children who are experiencing crisis and trauma.

Childcare Volunteers are asked to make a three hour a week commitment for at least 3 months. Student volunteers are asked to volunteer for at least one semester. All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, obtain or have current clearances to include Child Abuse, Criminal History, and FBI Fingerprints. We also ask for two letters of recommendation, a health assessment with a TB test.

Administrative Volunteers

These volunteers work alongside the Administrative team to assist in varying ways to include filing, follow-up phone calls, and data entry.

Special Events Volunteers

Jeremiah’s Place supports and hosts numerous events throughout the year and can often use extra hands.

Maintenance Volunteers

Can you swing a hammer, turn a screw, or repair a leaky faucet? We will call our maintenance volunteers when we have a minor issue.  This is an on-call opportunity.

Student Interns

Jeremiah’s Place has served as the field site for numerous student interns from local universities and colleges. They provide care for children, work with our Licensed Social Worker, assist with fundraisers and other special events, provide training, write grants, and coordinate community outreach. Specific duties are based on the student’s field of study. All internships are unpaid.
