Volunteer

The ABC House depends almost entirely on the help of volunteers. Please consider:

  • Helping with fundraising activities such as the Fall Foliage Walk
  • Helping maintain the ABC House
  • Serving on the Board of Directors
  • Being a host family

Interested in learning more about becoming a host parent/host family? There are no “requirements,” i.e., family size, age of children, etc. Successful host families have been parents with an empty nest and parents with young children, as well as parents with children currently in the secondary schools. Read more about the host family program here, or contact Wendy Kohler, President of the Amherst A Better Chance Board of Directors at wendykohler@comcast.net or at 413-250-0091.
