President's Volunteer Service Award 2014

The Children's Inn is a proud recipient of the 2014 President's Volunteer Service Award in recognition of our Volunteer Program.

 

 Volunteering at The Children's Inn

The Children's Inn has a dynamic volunteer program with more than 200 volunteers. There are many ways to share your time and talents with The Inn and its families. 

Inn volunteers are involved in almost every operational aspect of The Children's Inn. Our managers, professional staff and veteran volunteers provide your training. Volunteers must be at least 18 years-old for the long-term positions listed below. 


A sampling of volunteer opportunities include:

  • Clerical/Administrative
    These behind-the-scene activities make daily operations run smoothly.; Volunteers support The Inn staff through data processing, filing, typing, mailings or runs to the post office and the bank.
  • Gardeners
    Our green thumb volunteers maintain our beautiful landscape, flowerbeds and indoor plants, which help create the relaxing atmosphere of The Inn.
  • Roamer
    Volunteers maintain our well-stocked kitchens, and help to achieve an overall attractive and comfortable home-like atmosphere for resident families.
  • Welcome Desk:
    Volunteers are our registration and concierge desk all in one. They answer phones, take reservations, check families in and out of their rooms, orient new families to The Inn and answer questions about everything from airport transportation to visits to the zoo.

If you are interested in volunteering on a regular basis, please complete our Volunteer Service Application, or contact Katelyn Baughan, Community Outreach and Volunteer Program Assistant at 301-594-5364 or hansenka2@mail.nih.gov.
