Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Ballard Center in Lawrence, KS! One of the most important roles as a volunteer is understanding the services we provide.

Our Mission:

Ballard Center partners with families to achieve stability through early childhood education and needs-based services.

Our Vision:

Since 1965, Ballard Center has served an important role in our community by offering safety-net support services, which includes emergency services to families to promote stability, and quality early childhood education at an affordable price. These services strengthen families and create lasting change. We believe that the first step in changing lives is to acknowledge that the disparities brought about through poverty exist and strive to address the barriers our children and clients face in finding safety and support.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Ballard relies on numerous committees to achieve its mission, some of which are: Education, Family Stabilization, Finance, Gala, Operations, and Public Relations. Professional volunteers who are interested in joining a committee should email [email protected].
