1 Peter 4:8-10 “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another…as each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”

General Lifeline Volunteer

If you are interested in finding out about ways that you, your small group, or your church can get involved with Lifeline, please contact Lindsey Grist at lindsey.grist@lifelinechild.org. We are always looking for people to help assist with projects around our office and at events. We look forward to helping you get involved!

Foster Care

*Volunteer with Children

  • Childcare provision is often needed and welcomed at foster care support events. This involves care provision for children in care and for children of foster families. Events include the annual foster parent retreat, the annual Christmas party, quarterly foster fellowships, etc. If you are interested in volunteering to help with childcare for one of these events, please contact Christy Harmon Christy.harmon@lifelinechild.org

*Note: A background check and training course is required for this volunteer position.

Families Count

Become a Mentor for Families Count

  • As a mentor in Families Count, you will be making a six-week commitment to a birth parent completing the weekly class. Our mentors do not attend the parenting classes, but provide discipleship, intercessory prayer and emotional support to birth parents as they learn new concepts and seek to implement them in their families. To become a mentor, please contact Traci Newell at Traci.newell@lifelinechild.org

International Post Adoption Team

  • Bonding Bags- As families who are preparing to adopt internationally complete our Crossings Training, they are given a “Bonding Bag”.  Bonding bags contain items that will assist the families (with bonding and attachment, language development and gross and fine motor skills) when they meet their child and in the early days home.  The Post Adoption Team would love your help collecting these items, making communication folders, laminating handouts, and assembling the bags.  Please contact Lindsey at lindsey.grist@lifelinechild.org for more information.
  •  Administrative Tasks– Occasionally our administrative team needs assistance with administrative tasks such as filing and copying.  If you are a detail-oriented person and have an interest in helping in this way, please contact Lindsey at lindsey.grist@lifelinechild.org to explore our current needs.


Please complete the following volunteer application to Lindsey Grist at lindsey.grist@lifelinechild.org. Thank you for your heart to serve!
