Whether you host a donation drive, mentor a resident, or deliver a homemade meal, any help you're able to provide makes a significant impact in the lives of our residents and clients.
Hosting a donation drive through your place of employment, school, civic or religious group, neighborhood, or group of friends is a great way to help keep our supplies stocked and expenses down! Supplies that we are regularly in need of are as follows:
Kitchen cleaning products
Bathroom cleaning products
Men & women's body wash
Men & women's deodorant
Toothbrushes & toothpaste
Feminine hygiene products
Socks & underwear for teens
Individually packaged snacks
If you or your organization would like to donate a meal to our residents, contact us so we can schedule a day, time and inform you of any special dietary restrictions our residents have. In a house full of teenagers, meals are always a source of excitement and gratitude!
Lead a tutorial or class to share your professional skills or favorite hobbies with the residents! This may include anything from Zumba to resume writing—the opportunities are endless!
Trent Hill Center’s Independent Living Program for youth ages 18-21 relies heavily on community-wide participation to create a network of support for residents as they work towards independence in adulthood. Residents in this program are required to meet tasks related to several independent living competencies: automobile upkeep & safety, career readiness, citizenship, communication, educational exploration, financial literacy, household management, health & well-being, personal safety, and social-emotional skills. If you have a skill set that lies within any of these categories, we welcome your involvement and investment into our community’s youth.
Trent Hill Center’s residential and administrative buildings sit on a piece of property with a great deal of green space, which is regularly in need of maintenance and sprucing-up. If you have a green thumb or are good with a rake, we could use you—and your garden tools!
Mentoring a THC resident is one of the most engaging, most impactful, ways you can become involved with THC. Mentors are expected to spend time with their mentee at a minimum of once a week. Mentors are not required to have prior experience; we only ask that they be willing, eager, reliable, and invested in demonstrating a positive, healthy adult relationship. Mentors have steady access to support and communication from THC personnel. Complete the volunteer form to get the mentoring process started today!
Our Vision: Every child and every family will be valued, encouraged, and welcomed in their safe, stable communities.
