Are you not a single mom, but you would like to volunteer? Join our BeFriend Movement and volunteer in greeting, registration, our spa, the diva boutique, and ultimately to show another woman that you care! We want each of our moms attending to feel at home, cared for, and loved, knowing they have sisters to come alongside for support. Purchase a ticket today and a representative will be in contact with you regarding housing information and sign up options for a volunteer training date. Please contact Julie at with other volunteer questions.

*There may be additional, minimal costs if you prefer different housing arrangements or you arrive on Thursday evening to help with set-up.
