Make a Difference in a child's life, Become a Nanny Angel!  
Imagine a world where every mother with cancer receives the care needed for her children – so she has enough time to care for herself. Now, also imagine a world where every child receives the support they need to cope with their mother’s illness or death.  
 
The Nanny Angel Network (NAN) offers rewarding volunteer positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.  
 
Nanny Angels provide free, specialized in-home relief childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period.  
 
Nanny Angels lessen the impact of cancer on families, by engaging children in enjoyable, age-appropriate activities to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing due to their mom’s illness or death.  
 
By visiting weekly, building trust, and having fun, Nanny Angels help mothers gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest or attend appointments, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers.  
 
Nanny Angels receive specialized training including children’s grief and bereavement and receive the support of NAN’s Child Life Specialist throughout their volunteering time.  
 
Kindly note, the role is not that of a babysitter, housekeeper, or personal assistant – a Nanny Angel’s primary focus is engaging and supporting the children.

Visits are weekly for as little as one-hour time commitment for an in-home visit or a couple of hours if you care to take them to an activity in which you share an interest such as coffee, shopping, attend an art show, live music, even for a walk by the lake. By volunteering, you may also be providing some much-needed support to a caregiver or family member simply by visiting one of our wonderful clients.  
 
Your visit helps maintain and encourage the client's confidence and independence.  
We have a long list of non-English speaking clients waiting for company.

Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
You could work alone if you have a successful history in fundraising. Otherwise, you would be working with 2 or 3 other volunteers to collaborate in development of a fundraising campaign - using our newsletter, website (under construction) and Facebook. 
We are hoping for volunteers who are enthusiastic, creative, optimistic and somewhat experienced in environmental matters, and comfortable in collaborative action. Interest in tree-planting is desirable but not necessary. 
 
Due to Covid, we are not meeting in person, but on line (ZOOM, telephone communication, and email.)
Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
Virtual Zoom meetings
The Development Committee interacts with the Board: brainstorming, making creative suggestions, and collaborating with several Action Groups that are the "front line" of the organization. In general, we need people with a commitment to the natural world and willingness to collaborate with a group to apply that commitment in action. 
 
1. Attending and participating in a biweekly Zoom meeting of the Development Committee, usually on a Tuesday evening, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 
2. Brainstorming and engaging in creative, imaginative thinking with a diverse group.  
3. As much as possible, following up between meetings to report relevant information or ideas for the following meeting.  
 
We welcome and value a few high school students, but we need a majority of adults. We respect that the students must put their academics first, which usually results in losing students at some time in the year.
