Benefits of being an intern or long-term volunteer:

Contribute according to your passion!
Our interns and volunteers work on projects specifically pertaining to individual interests, passion and/or coursework. Whether you’re implementing fundraising events or improving our website, you will be given work in which you are passionate about.

Serve the local Orange County community!
Grandma’s House of Hope exists to serve Orange County women, children, and elderly in need. Interns will have the opportunity to see the impact that their work has on the lives of each of our clients and our community. Aside from learning about the unique inner-workings of Grandma’s House of Hope, interns and volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the Orange County non-profit industry as a whole.

Build a strong professional and personal network!
One of the best things about working with a small non-profit is the opportunity to know every single person in the organization. You will have the chance to meet and get to know not just our staff, but other volunteers and interns like you!

Food Drives

Though our Nana’s Kidz program, GHH feeds 160 kids with 616 meals a year–we’re always in need of food donations! Hosting a food drive for GHH is easy. Click here to learn more about hosting a food drive for GHH, along with some ideas to make it a fun experience for everyone involved.

Donations

One thing that GHH loves are gift card donations (any type, any amount). One of the reasons gift cards are such a blessing to the women and children in our programs is that it offers them the rare gift of choice–to pick out something special just for them. In many cases our program participants have been deprived of the right to make choices for themselves. This is a simple act that goes a long way for self-empowerment!

GHH accepts donations of gently used clothing, furniture, and linens. Please call ahead if you have any items to donate, and we will gladly let you know if we can use them, or refer you to another organization with a greater need for those items. Click here for a list of items we accept.
