Although Sophia's Heart programs are not yet established in every state, we are currently looking for volunteers nationwide that can help with future events as they arise. For those of you looking to get plugged in with volunteering for Sophia's Heart.
Please email our volunteer coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.You too can help One Heart Touch Many.
We value our volunteers and their talents. Sophia’s Heart now has opportunities available for everyone at our different locations. Even better, you don’t have to be local to help us.
We know that everyone has different areas of expertise, so to help you better serve us, we’ve provided a detailed list of volunteer tasks for you to choose from. Once you’ve selected the volunteer task(s) you are interested in email your contact information and the Task ID to email@example.com. We will then contact you individually with specific instructions and information. Click the image to download the volunteer task list now.
Being a volunteer not only leaves a lasting impact on those receiving the services, but, it also leaves an impact on the volunteers themselves. At Sophia’s Heart we’d like for our volunteers to share their experience (this is not mandatory). In doing so, after each event, volunteers will be asked to provide feedback or even a short story about the opportunity they chose to help with. The volunteer should include a picture of themselves or of the people that were impacted along with a 1 page (8 ½ x 11) or less story about your experience. We will then post some of these stories under our Volunteer’s Voice section on our web site.
For those wanting to volunteer a completed volunteer application is required before you can participate in any events. If you have not done so already, download the volunteer application now. For more information on volunteer opportunities please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to you helping us become “One Heart Touching Many.”
Volunteer's Voice: Sophia's Heart Volunteers Share Their Experiences
Through Volunteer Work My Blessing Begins
In February of this year I lost my best friend, who was like a sister, to brain cancer. A couple of months after her passing, God laid the words non-profit organization on my heart. At first I thought the lord was telling me to start one in her memory. But while continuing to pray, and asking my neighbors to pray as well, they felt I should look into an already established non-profit that aimed to help others.
In March, while surfing the radio stations, I heard a song called My Best Days and was immediately drawn to the positive message in the lyrics. I wondered who the artist was. The DJ announced that the artist was Danny Gokey. So I went to his official fan club site and found Sophia's Heart.
In May, when the flood happened, SHF opened a flood relief center near the community where I live. I felt lead to take a donation of food and water to the center. I begin to talk to two gentlemen who were helping at the center. Little did I know at the time these men played a vital role in operating the Nashville branch of Sophia’s Heart.
Two weeks later after revisiting the Sophia's Heart website God confirmed that this non-profit organization was where I needed to plant my feet to help others. I then made the call and had a meeting with the director. Now the blessing for me begins. As I get to participate in my passion of helping others.
One of my first assignments as a volunteer for Sophia's Heart was the Hickory Hollow Family Night Event on August 3, 2010. This was the second public performance for the SHF Nashville Contemporary Children’s Choir. Part of my job, as a volunteer for this event, was to distribute bottled water and hand towels to the children before they performed. I also photographed their performance during this event.
As I watched the children perform, I observed in their eyes and heard in their voices a confidence of hope that had been restored. The love and compassion shown by SHF staff members, volunteers and through the music and arts programs all contributes to making this happen. I share in the vision of Sophia’s Heart and feel very blessed to volunteer my time in helping this vision become a reality.
