Get Involved!

The Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center welcomes all inquiries from persons interested in volunteering their time and talent to assist in helping children who have experienced abuse.

Everyone has some skill or resource that can benefit the operations and, thus, benefit the innocent child victims of abuse in our community.

BCCAC is currently seeking the following types of volunteer assistance:

Administrative – general office work including typing, data entry, filing and copying.

Building and Maintenance – assist with painting, decorating and repair needs to help keep the sites warm and inviting.

Fundraising – initiate, plan and/or assist with fundraising activities.

Community Outreach/Publicity – writing, editing, graphic arts, design and layout.

Artwork – assist with creating a child friendly mural and/or locate child friendly artwork in the community.

If you're interested in exploring the possibility of volunteering your services, please contact our Director, Leslie Slingsby, by phone at (267) 927-0639 or via e-mail.

Due to the confidential nature of our work, we do not offer volunteer opportunities that allow direct contact with the children we serve.
