Ways to help

Residential Mentors

Meet with your mentee once a week to discuss life in general, play board games, craft, or do other activities you both enjoy. Your mentorship will last as long as your mentee is here at Vista Maria, which is usually a 3 – 6 month commitment of 1 hour per week. Mentors must be female and at least 20 years of age.

Residential Volunteer Activities

Whether you choose to volunteer individually, with a friend, or as part of a larger corporate or social group, we are eager to have you host a fun and meaningful volunteer activity– no idea is too big or too small! About 10 to 28 residents typically participate in group activities. If you have an interest, skill, or passion, there is likely a girl at Vista Maria who loves it too! We recently polled our residents to ask what they would love to do or learn about with volunteers so see our volunteer page for their suggestions. Please allow a minimum of two weeks’ notice to plan the event.
