Important Volunteer Update – March 12, 2020

In light of the current Coronavirus situation, Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is proactively working to protect the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, staff and visitors.

Our House is uniquely vulnerable to the spread of this virus as we house families who are coming to and from the hospital visiting with their immune-suppressed loved ones. This is in addition to our House providing many communal spaces such as the kitchen and dining room. To reduce the possibility of infection, we are temporarily suspending all in-house volunteer opportunities through April 15th.

We will continue housing patient families and supporting the health and safety of our guests and staff through increased systematic daily cleaning and disinfecting and posted signs to promote hand washing.

Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is supported by a strong foundation of volunteers. We rely volunteers each month to maintain a safe, clean, friendly environment. The efforts of our volunteers produce a homelike environment to the many guests who come through our doors in desperately stressful situations with their children.

Join the many hundreds who have been changed by their gift of giving to Children’s Hope. Whether it’s in guest services, making a meal for the families, painting a guest room, or volunteering at one of our many charity events, Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House can use your help.

Your time is the most valuable commodity you have and we plan to spend it wisely. We ask for no set time commitment from our volunteers but have many who have been with us for years. We provide a safe, clean environment for our volunteers with clear direction for the task at hand. Staff will always be on hand to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you Hope House! We appreciate all your generosity and hospitality. Thank you for allowing us to spend lots of time with our son. We will continue to pray for this ministry! – Guest

Hometown Chef

Imagine going from vending machines and hospital food for days, weeks and even months on end to a delicious home-cooked meal! The Hometown Chef program is a great opportunity for individuals or groups to get together and serve our families.  Whether it’s your co-workers, classmates, family, friends, or teammates, you are guaranteed a worthwhile experience planning and preparing a meal to our families.  Schedule a time to make breakfast, lunch or dinner for our families. We have a beautiful gourmet kitchen where you can prepare a meal or bring a already prepared meal from your own kitchen. We also have a fully stocked pantry and you are welcome to use any items that we already have on hand to prepare your meal.  You are typically preparing a meal for approximately 12-15 people.

We do not ask our Hometown Chef’s to cater to any specific dietary restrictions.  The guest know that they are welcome to use and prepare any items from our pantry if they cannot eat what is served on a particular evening.

If you wish to prepare a meal in our kitchen during the week, it is preferable that you arrive no earlier than 10am and finish not later than 4pm.  Weekend hours are from 12pm-4:30pm.  If you are bringing or preparing a breakfast on the weekend, please make special arrangements by contacting the house @ 260-459-8550 or email sara@childrenshopefw.org.

Housekeeping Volunteer

Come in on a regular basis as an individual, or come as a group (up to 10) to help keep the Children’s Hope House as clean as possible. A clean, uncluttered home reduces the stress for our families who already have enough on their minds. Please call the House @ 260-459-8550 or email sara@childrenshopefw.org to learn more about helping on a regular basis.

Hope House Craftsman

Come in on a regular basis as an individual, be “on-call,” or come as a group to lend your specialized “handy-man” skills. A well-maintained and beautiful House helps our families know that our community cares!

Please call the House at 260-459-8550 or email sara@childrenshopefw.org to learn more.
