For over 100 years, Spence-Chapin has depended on the talents of our volunteers. In fact, the two nurseries that later became Spence-Chapin Services to Families and Children, began as volunteer organizations.
Got time? Spend it with Spence-Chapin.
The enthusiasm and dedication of many helping hands can touch
hundreds of children in need, whether living right here in New York or
thousands of miles away in orphanages overseas.
Registry Wish Lists: Organize a Drive
Thanks to our active schedules, our donations closet is growing bare. Help us restock by organizing a drive to collect new clothing, shoes, developmental toys, blankets and other supplies desperately needed by children living in orphanages overseas. Or, donate baby essentials like formula, diapers and new car seats to Spence-Chapin's waiting babies who are in care while their birth parents make a permanent plan for them. To view our "Wish Lists," click on the links noted below.
Please contact Gina Pariani, coordinator of Program Development & Humanitarian Aid at 212-360-0276 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Donations are tax deductible, and items can be conveniently shipped directly to Spence-Chapin for immediate use. Thanks in advance for your help!
We have a number of opportunities for those interested in volunteering at Spence-Chapin. Projects vary and time commitments are flexible.
Become an Interim Care Provider
Our private infant care program provides a safe and loving caregiver for a baby giving the birth parents time they may need after delivery to make a decision about the baby's future. The interim care program assures the baby is well cared for during this period.
