Canopy Center is a non-profit in Madison that works to prevent and treat child abuse through the use of multiple programs. In addition, they offer programs to help support parent/child relationships. I have volunteered in their office since January and am thoroughly impressed with their work in the community. I am very proud to volunteer for their organization and hope that they continue to be successful on their path to help families in need of support.

I started volunteering at Canopy Center just a few months ago. The Canopy Center programs do so much for families and are a great resource for people to help cope with the many demands in life. I have found that as a volunteer for the Canopy Center that I can make a difference in people's lives, what I do is worthwhile to others, and I am a part of something much larger. Overall the Canopy Center is great place to volunteer and they provide the training and support needed to do a good job.

This program provides much needed support for the families. I love volunteering at the Canopy Center!
