General Information

  • Volunteer Opportunities / Responsibilities: More than a third of Barker’s annual budget comes in the form of gifts.

    Your volunteerism and gift of time helps Barker provide services for adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth/first parents. You make possible no-fee pregnancy and adoption counseling for women, and help Barker provide free monthly support groups and workshops to adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents. It will contribute to helping vulnerable children with special needs who need an adoptive family.
