Thank you for considering volunteering your time with Loaves and Fishes.  It takes many hands to make Loaves and Fishes successful.  Your efforts, whether supporting the staff and board, or working with children is most appreciated.  Helping children impacts them forever and giving of your time can offer you fulfillment. 

We have children who are at-risk ranging in ages from K-12 who come from surrounding schools (via their teachers) and are in need of support in a variety of ways in order for them to achieve success in every area of their life.
