The work of the Gingerbread House would not be possible without the caring individuals that volunteer their time and talents to assist the Center in many different capacities. Some provide leadership through our Board of Directors (14 volunteer directors), some provide their professional skills to assist families with specific needs such as speech therapy for children, therapy dog program, and support group co-facilitation by graduate interns; yet others volunteer their time and compassion by sitting with families in the waiting area and lending a listening ear and a supportive hand.
Others volunteer with specific annual projects such as the school supply drive, Christmas outreach, fall fundraiser, and other office/clerical projects. We welcome the opportunity to partner with new volunteers through the many facets of our volunteer program.
The Gingerbread House Bossier/Caddo Children’s Advocacy Center is a non-profit organization which utilizes an interagency approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse cases. The mission of the Gingerbread House is to lessen the trauma experienced by child abuse victims as allegations are investigated and to provide support for the child victim in any resulting proceedings within the criminal justice system.
By providing items on our Needs List, you are ultimately helping the over 500 children we serve each year at the Gingerbread House. Thank you!
