Christmas Gifts for Teens & Tweens in Foster Care
- In past years, Teens and Tweens in foster care were often forgotten and received few or no gifts for Christmas. Our desire is for every child to feel special especially at the holidays. We are looking for sponsors to purchase gifts from a wish list created by the child totaling a minimum of $150. Gifts will be returned in early December and then distributed to the kids by DHR. 

Tutors, Drivers and Sitters - Jefferson County DHR is looking for volunteers willing to help kids with schoolwork, drive them to doctor's appointments or birth parent visits and sitters to spend time with sick children in the hospital.  Background check and short training session required to participate.  Schedule flexible according to your ability to help.

Leaders for New Initiatives - We're looking for a few folks to help coordinate specific initiatives that we want to start in Birmingham.  These include coordinating volunteer drivers, tutors & mentors (mainly phone & emailing), Beautification Teams (scheduling volunteers for each month and follow-up), Church Liason (contacting local churches about opportunities to serve through TFI).
