There are many ways to volunteer at Sparrows Rest. From helping to maintain the grounds, construct and renovate outbuildings, care for the animals, mentor a child or teach a class for independent living skills. Anyone who will be directly working with the children must submit to a criminal and child protective services background check. Safety for our children is the first concern.
