Our volunteers help us provide the extra loving touch for the children and young adults when their families can’t be there.

An Opportunity to Provide Companionship
For the adults, volunteers are special friends that bring so much sunshine into their lives.

Work Behind the Scenes
Volunteers also provide “behind the scenes” assistance which includes errand running, clerical work, sewing and maintenance.

Volunteer with a Friend or Group!
Remember, you don't have to volunteer alone...bring along co-workers, family members or friends.

Children’s Care Auxiliary
Founded in 1952, Children’s Care Auxiliary was formed by a group of women who wanted to provide funds for the physical, educational, social, and daily needs of children with special healthcare and educational needs. The group gathers for a luncheon meeting at 11:45 on the third Monday of each month September through May. The primary objective is to raise money for LifeScape through three annual fundraising events.

Fall Social: November social event for members and guests with Silent Auction benefiting LifeScape

MallWalk: February fundraising event started in 1994. Participants(friends, families, and individuals supported by LifeScape) gather at the Empire Mall to walk in support of LifeScape. Funds are raised through individual and corporate donations, and sponsorships

Tablescapes: A friendly tablescaping competition, fabulous brunch, and silent auction of art created by the people we serve combine for a great early summer fundraiser.

Current Officers:
Lisa Rasmussen, President
Bunny Timpe, President-Elect
Leslie Stusiak-Drew, Secretary
Lynne Steele, Treasurer
Cindy Walsh, Past-President
