How Can You Help?

     Our goal is obedience to Philippians 2:3-4: “Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”

     Our volunteers have a heart for the women they serve. Opportunities at CRADLE are as varied as the people’s interests. Whatever your profession, hobby, talent, or gift is, you can serve. Volunteers can counsel clients, donate funds, help with office tasks, maintain the facility, and much more.     

     If you feel called to act, but haven't known exactly how, the ministry of CRADLE offers you a compassionate way to make a difference.  

    CRADLE needs you! As an individual member of the Body of Christ, and as a member of a local church, you are critical to the effectiveness of this ministry. 

     For a Volunteer Application Packet please call the Center at 740-354-2273, Tuesday- Thursday, 10 am - 4 pm, or by e-mail at
