Volunteer at Jeremiah's Place

You can help us create a community that is a safe and nurturing place for all children to thrive

It takes a lot of work to keep Pittsburgh's only crisis nursery running around the clock. That's why we're always looking for volunteers to help us with our mission!

Volunteering isn't just limited to childcare, Jeremiah's Place is always looking for help in every aspect of our organization.

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, and obtain or have current clearances to include Child Abuse, Criminal History, and FBI Fingerprints. We also ask for two letters of recommendation and a health assessment with a TB test.

Event Volunteers

Jeremiah’s Place hosts several events and fundraisers throughout the year. Our Special Event Volunteers help with organizing, planning, and giving us the extra hands needed for these events to go off spectacularly.

Student Internships

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.
