The REAL Program


Want to do something rewarding? Volunteer in REAL life... we have lots of ideas how!

The REAL Program exists because we have so many amazing volunteers who keep returning to volunteer and support our families. 

Volunteers come from all over the North Shore and range in ages from 14 to 74. From professionals and retirees looking to work with children or spend time giving to the community, to high school and college students looking for service-learning opportunities, we have a place for everyone who is willing to commit to helping REAL families. 

* All in-house volunteers must be vaccinated against Covid-19. 

Current Opportunities: 


Administrative Assistant


We are currently seeking a partial-time in-house administrative volunteer to help Jan with day-to-day necessities - answering phone calls and emails, keeping the center organized, tracking donations, and helping with operations as necessary.

Little Free Library Project

Seeking neighborhood liaisons who can fill the Little Free Libraries with our donated books, in their neighborhoods. Don't have a REAL Little Free Library in your neighborhood? Contact us!
