Get Involved at Lucy Daniels Center
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Gandhi
There are many ways to get involved at Lucy Daniels Center! We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about helping children and families live emotionally health lives. Use your unique talents to to help those in need in our community by volunteering for Lucy Daniels Center!
Behind the Scenes

Stuff envelopes, organize files, help us create holiday baskets for outreach, update contact lists. Your support means everything to us! On-site and virtual options are available.
Teaching and Healing Garden
Lucy Daniels School Teaching and Healing Garden is both an outdoor classroom and a horticultural therapy
site for children and their families who are being served through one of the Center’s mental and emotional
health programs. Our goal is to use gardening and nature-related activities as a way to work on treatment
goals related to self-esteem, personal responsibility, personal achievement, motivation, socialization, self-expression,
relaxation, and sensory stimulation. Volunteers are needed to help with garden cleanup, regular maintenance, garden event planning, seasonal planting, and more. This is a great way to work outside and contribute in a meaningful way. On-site, outdoor volunteer opportunity.
Help us keep our Lucy Daniels School library running smoothly by volunteering to shelve books and keep the library organized and maintained. On-site, after school hours.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

There is no better exercise for your heart than reaching down and helping to lift someone up.
