OUR HOUSE volunteers are the heart of our agency, helping grieving children, teens, and adults find hope and healing.
Over 450 volunteers donate more than 20,000 hours of service annually as group leaders or event volunteers.
“My experience as a volunteer for Camp Erin L.A. was completely amazing! I never knew so much love and understanding was out there for grieving children. Camp Erin is run with great integrity, compassion, and expertise. As a volunteer I felt so welcomed and cared for. I definitely will be volunteering again in the future!” – Debbie, Camp Erin Volunteer
“If you are looking for a volunteer experience working directly with others, this is one of the most valuable ways to make a difference. The opportunity to work with grieving adults and help bring hope to their lives is one of the deepest and most valuable experiences that I have ever encountered.” – Susan, OUR HOUSE Group Leader
Children’s groups always end with a ritual – a gentle squeeze of friendship and support.
Group members stand in a circle, with hands crossed and held in front of them, and the squeeze travels around the circle one person at a time.
The squeeze is in recognition of the thoughts and feelings shared in group and a way of sending each other support.
