Make a Difference in a Child's life, Become an In-home Volunteer Angel!

Do you want to support families living with cancer? Are you willing to commit 4 hours of in home support per week to a child in need? Join Nankind as we lessen the impact of cancer on families through our in home support programs.

Nankind offers rewarding volunteer positions for those who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.

In home Volunteer Angels provide childcare support for parents who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care, and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing due to their parent’s illness or death.

By meeting weekly, building trust, and having fun, our Angels help parents gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest or attend medical appointments, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers.

There's a family in your community waiting for their very own Angel!
