Safe Babies & CPS Room Volunteer Opportunity
Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) Visitation Rooms are integral spaces for parents and children to have weekly family time. First3Years works to ensure that these spaces are friendly, safe, and age appropriate to promote comfort and care for all who visit. These environments require continuous upkeep and new toys and books for it to remain a safe and an inviting place for children and families.
Safe Babies Dallas County has 4 rooms to support in 2023; opportunities currently available are the first Saturday of the month from 9-11am.
Point of contact: Director of Safe Babies, Stephanie Madrigal, email@example.com
