Living The Pro-Life Calling, Hand-in-Hand with Mothers and Their Babies
VITAE CORPS MEMBERS (Live-In Volunteer Staff)
Aid for Women is seeking Vitae Corps members (VCs), recent female college graduates who volunteer by living and working together in community at Aid for Women’s residential programs, Heather’s House and Monica’s House. Vitae Corps members must possess a passionate commitment to Aid for Women’s vision and mission, which include a strong commitment to pro-life and sexual integrity values.
Vitae Corps members assist staff in providing our residents with safe and nurturing homes. Vitae Corps members play a vital role in affirming and supporting each mother in her decision to choose life — providing her with the emotional, practical and spiritual support she and her baby need while participating in our residential programs.
