Volunteer Questions

How can I help and what skills are needed to become a “room makeover volunteer?”

Donating funds is not the only way to make a difference. Special Spaces thrives on the talent of our many volunteers, and our volunteers are vital to the mission of Special Spaces. While the Special Spaces leadership team does the majority of the “front-end” planning and preparation, the majority of the work required to create these dream rooms is fulfilled by volunteers on-site. If you are a contractor, handyperson, electrician, muralist, seamstress, artist or someone who is willing to help make a difference for our child in need, please let us know how you can help by filling out this form and submitting.

  • No smoking or profanity allowed on the job site.
