The care and support we can bring to these mothers and their babies goes well beyond volunteering at an event. The best care we can bring is opportunity – opening our doors, homes, and lives to help change the trajectory of their lives. Below is a list of volunteer needs that we have at Jonah’s Journey:
- Caregivers who are willing to take in an infant long term and provide support to their incarcerated mother.
- Organizations or businesses who will hire mothers with felony charges.
- Renters who will rent out homes to people with no credit history.
- Donations of furniture and clothes to women coming out of prison.
- Communities and churches who can become aware of the families that provide foster care and be attentive to the needs of those families.
Pray for Jonah’s Journey. Pray for the families in need of help, and for the infants in need of care due to circumstances beyond their control. Pray for the caregivers, that they would have strength and wisdom to know how to best care for the babies placed in their homes.
Advocate for Children
Recommend Jonah’s Journey as a Christian alternative option to parents in jails, hospitals, churches, crisis pregnancy centers, and treatment centers – anywhere a mother finds herself in crisis and needs a safe place for her baby to live.
