Get Involved

Help those suffering from child abuse in Indiana by volunteering at either of our Susie’s Place locations in Avon and Bloomington.

While some of our work is deeply personal and technical in nature, we’re always looking for help with items like maintenance, education and outreach, computer work, special events, mailing, landscaping and any other skills or talents that you might be able to lend.

Simply download, fill out and print our volunteer application (an original signature is required), fax it to 317-272-5697, mail it to Susie’s Place, or scan and email it to [email protected].

We consider applicants for all volunteer positions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, the presence of a non-job related medical condition or handicap, or any other legally protected status.

Help us continue to grow and help Hoosier children.

Susie’s Place is always looking for donations, monetarily or by gifts. We’d love to have any of these items, though monetary donations are our greatest need.
