Volunteer to Help Hampshire County Parents as a Parent Aide

Volunteer as a Parent Aid with Berkshire Children & Families

The PAVE program pairs trained volunteers with Hampshire County families in order to provide one-to-one, relationship-based home visiting support. PAVE volunteers commit to approximately one year of service to one family.

Marylou Spaulding of Berkshire Children & Families writes:

Become a Parent Aide!  For over 32 years, the PAVE program has been providing home-based support to Hampshire County parents who are stressed and often isolated from a supportive community. The program’s goal is to strengthen and empower parents by giving them new tools to help them in their parenting journey.  Compassion, common sense and the ability to listen to a parent are required.

Berkshire Children & Families will provide the training and supervision. Volunteer 3 to 5 hours per week. Spring training is now forming and we hope you can join us!  No commitment required until after you have completed our interesting and informative training.  Please join the next PAVE training and discover how you can make a positive difference in the lives of children and families in your community.
