“A Happy and Healthy Community is not an illusion.
All you need is willing people.”
Jacob’s Hope is a non-profit organization, caring for the specific needs of newborns who have been substance exposed. The partnerships that have been created with people like you, are invaluable and without your help, we would not be able to function. At Jacob’s Hope, our volunteers are willing to do whatever is needed to care for the babies.
Since we are a State of Arizona licensed facility, there are certain requirements that we must follow. They are as follows:
- Must be 18 years or older to volunteer; 21 for direct infant contact
- Tuberculosis skin test (yearly)
- Level One DPS fingerprint card
- Yearly flu shot or the wearing of a mask (we provide these)
Along with these state requirements, we also require a volunteer orientation which covers the rules and guidelines of Jacob’s Hope, as well as our code of conduct and compliance to policy.
Jacob’s Hope staff members are meeting the needs of medically compromised infants who are suffering from drug withdrawals. These babies need specific medical care and nurturing from our trained nurses. Our only goal is to meet the needs of our infants. This is what we are asking from every member of the Jacob’s Hope team, from our staff to our volunteers.
