There are 5 ways to contribute your time, money, or attention to our mission
Susie’s Place is always looking for donations; monetary or gifts. Some common donations to our Centers include easel paper, DVD-Rs, DVD sleeves, tissues, gently used or new toys, printer paper, hand sanitizer, toiletries, and backpacks with school supplies.
We’d love to receive any of these items, though monetary donations are our greatest need and grant us the most flexibility.
Donations are processed through our payment partner at Network for Good
Help those suffering from child abuse in Indiana by volunteering at any of our Susie’s Place locations in Avon, Bloomington, and Terre Haute.
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.
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. A background check will be conducted.
