“I came from poverty and know what it’s like not to have things. When I had the opportunity to work with this organization, I realized I had a lot of power to make a lot of difference.”

— Bernadette McDaniel, TOMVO Board of Directors

Every year, Things of My Very Own, Inc. serves more than 3,000 children in crisis. We provide children with clothing, bedding, hygiene products and more so they can remain with their non-abusive family members. Thanks to our amazing team of nearly 400 heroes (volunteers), we are able to change the trajectory of these children’s futures forever.

Volunteers at Things of My Very Own, Inc. are the driving force of the organization. Whether you’re an individual or part of a large group, whether you have 4 or 40 hours a week to contribute, these children need your help!

Get started by completing our online Volunteer Application.
