Who are the volunteers in ILYA?
Many of the volunteers in ILYA are members or friends of Delaware Unitarian Universalist congregations but the project has drawn interest and volunteer commitment from the community as well. Some volunteers have had experience with foster care and some have had little to no involvement with the child welfare system.

Most of us participate in ILYA to help others, to pay back to our community [for the privileges we have enjoyed] and to live our values. We’ve found that helping others helps us to better understand obstacles facing those less fortunate and better appreciate advantages in our own lives.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Barbara Crowell at ILYA.firstu.de@gmail.com or call First Unitarian Church at 302-478-2384 and we will pass your message on to ILYA.
