Get Involved at Palmer Home
We are grateful to partner with individuals, civic groups, churches and businesses who generously volunteer their time, energy and resources to benefit the children in our care. Prayer is always of utmost importance to our mission, and we humbly ask for your prayers for our children, families and staff.

Become A Mentor
These powerful, rewarding relationships bring hope for children in our care, impacting their lives for the better. As a mentor, you are an extended network of support for the child — sharing in birthday parties, holidays and church activities, attending events like ball games and recitals, teaching a teen to drive and so much more.
Become A Volunteer
Our volunteers provide much-needed support through a number of initiatives. Palmer Home's volunteers provide support in a number of ways — through support at events, at holiday initiatives, and more. From wrapping gifts at Christmas to helping plant produce or flowers in our Hope Grows Garden, volunteers can choose from a number of roles.
Make an impact in the lives of both children and houseparents! Being a Respite Caregiver means providing short-term care (1–3 nights) for children at Palmer Home. Respite Caregivers commit to serving once a month or every other month to ensure they are building relationships with the children they care for and the caregivers they support.
Our campus, outside Hernando, Mississippi, sits on a sprawling 150 acres. Maintaining a clean campus is important to us, and it takes many people to make that possible! Care includes landscaping and maintaining seasonal flower beds.APPLY NOW

Participate in Fundraising
Involve your community and get started in your own personal fundraiser! For example, by donating your birthday, you can ask for donations in lieu of gifts. You can also organize an event with proceeds going to Palmer Home. Here are some guidelines to help you out.
Fund Their Fun
Every child deserves a chance to play, to have fun, and to just be a kid. Help us provide a chance for the children we serve to have fun. With a donation to Palmer Home's Fund Their Fun campaign, your donation directly supports extracurricular activities such as dance, music lessons, soccer, t-ball, and more.
If you have a specific need you’d like to fulfill, please contact our Community Development Coordinator. We are unable to fulfill every donation request, but we do our best to accommodate individuals and organizations willing to support our mission.
We consider everything a child might need when creating our annual operating budget. Your financial gift of any amount will ensure that our needs are met. Every dollar helps, so please consider an online gift today.Donate Now
