Our Volunteers

Our volunteers provide children living in temporary housing with the freedom to learn and heal through play. They encourage and support positive emotional development for one of the most vulnerable populations in the District. All on their own time. Without our volunteers, Playtime would not be the effective and dynamic organization that it is.

Here are three examples of outstanding volunteers, who were honored in 2017 for their dedicated service to Playtime:
