If you're interested in making a positive difference in the lives of the children we serve, Children's Care Hospital & School has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Whether it be cuddling or playing with a child or supporting our staff behind the scenes, volunteers play a vital role in our success as a caring environment for children with special needs.

The most important requirement to be a volunteer is a caring heart. Other guidelines:

  • You can be young or old: age 12 to 112, depending on the specific job.
  • Personal references are required.
  • Interviews are required.

Volunteers receive training for their specific job. For more information, contact our volunteer coordinator Sarah Donahue at, or call 605-444-9621. 

If you'd like to begin the process, we invite you to print and fill out our Volunteer Service Application. You may drop off the application at Children's Care Hospital & School, or mail it to: Children's Care Hospital & School, Volunteer Services, 2501 West 26th St., Sioux Falls, SD 57105.
