Volunteer

We are so grateful for the community partners and volunteers who donate their time and energy to us. If you are interested in volunteering, Palmer Home has many opportunities on the Hernando campuses.

We often welcome short-term teams from churches and youth groups, sororities and fraternities completing service projects, and individuals or families looking to give back to their community. Whatever your gifts, we’d love to help you or your group find a way to plug in to the mission of Palmer Home for Children.

Become a Sponsor

Sponsorship is a way to invest in the life of a young person at Palmer Home in a more consistent way.  It’s a commitment we do not take lightly, as sponsor relationships have proven to be very rewarding in the lives of our children.  If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or sponsor family, here are a few key points to consider:

Sponsorship Involves:

  • Investing in a child’s life by including the child in the family on a monthly basis
  • Supporting and encouraging the child by attending: ball games, recitals, awards days, etc.
  • Becoming an extended network of support for the child

Process to become Sponsor:
