April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month

OUR HOUSE staff and Board of Directors are so grateful to our DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS who have so generously remained committed to our mission throughout this challenging and unprecedented time. We celebrate and “thank” each one of you who fervently continues to help us transform the lives of grieving children, teens and adults, making a significant difference in their lives EVERYDAY. We could not bring hope, respect and understanding to the grief process WITHOUT YOU!

Meet OUR Longest Serving Volunteers

Volunteer Spotlight


Recognizing Chrissy:
The Longest-Standing Camp Erin LA Volunteer! 11 Years!

Q: How did you learn about OUR HOUSE?
A: I learned of OUR HOUSE from a dear friend and former volunteer, Amanda Mahoney who introduced me to the concept of grief support. Once I completed the training and began co-leading my first group, I was hooked. My love and support for OUR HOUSE only increased with the addition of Camp Erin.

Q: Why do you continue to volunteer at Camp Erin?
A: Providing these children the tools to help them navigate their individual grief journeys gives me such joy. As I witness their positive transformations, I feel such such a sense of accomplishment which is deeply rewarding. Camp Erin enriches the lives of Los Angeles’s children who might not have access to any other grief support.

Q: In honor of our 25th anniversary, what were you doing when you were 25?
A: I was working at an investment firm in Atlanta, Georgia, while learning the ropes of living in a big city, playing tons of tennis, and volunteering at Egleston Children’s Hospital.

“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.
