  • Resource Navigator- These volunteers work directly with women and couples in our Resource Navigation program. Using Abria’s database of referrals, they help clients find the additional community and Abria Boutique resources they need to move their families forward and serve as a source of encouragement and connection for clients.
  • Boutique Volunteer—Boutique volunteers help sort, organize, and stock items to give clients a dignified shopping experience.
  • Client Care Nurse (RN)– This position supports the work of our Medical Services program, including administering lab quality pregnancy testing, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) tests and limited OB ultrasound exams (must be certified).
  • Parent Education Facilitator (Abria U) – Role Responsibilities: The volunteer will interact directly with women to provide them with important and pertinent information through our diverse curriculum to help the client develop healthy relationships and empower them to confidently assume their parenting role.

  • Workshop Facilitator – Put your personal and professional expertise at the disposal of Abria’s clients by leading a client workshop to complement our parenting education programs and resource navigation programs. Past workshops have included financial planning, nutritious cooking, Happiest Baby on the Block, the Five Love Languages, and Scream Free Parenting. If you have any knowledge and experience that could benefit our clients, let us know.
  • Child Play Area Aide- These volunteers lead the children of our clients in engaging activities while their mothers or parents are in medical or personal support services appointments here at Abria. This supports clients in overcoming barriers to receiving the help they need. It’s also fun!
