Play-Place Autism & Special Needs Center needs patient, caring, smiling volunteers with a passion for helping others! Our center is for children and young adults affected by autism and other special needs. In 2021, our volunteers dedicated over 4,000+ hours assisting with a variety of impact projects, including arts & crafts kit assembly, guided individual and small group activities, organizing, special events assistance, as well as beautification of our center via painting, decorating and upgrades. Volunteer 3 to 4 hours of your time and inspire for a lifetime. Sign up for one shift, multiple shifts or even the same shift each week. We truly value our volunteers for the incredible difference they make in the lives of our visitors.
