Auxiliary Board

Young Professionals. Extraordinary Impact. 

Together, Auxiliary Board members make a collective impact that changes the lives of those we serve. They volunteer, raise funds, and grow awareness in the wider community - all in support of the mission. 

How You Make Impact

Our Auxiliary Board supports Association House's mission and community throughout the year. As a group they plan exciting fundraising events and give back through volunteering with our programs.

  • Hosts two fundraising/networking events a year! A Trivia Night in March. And our signature Summer Soiree in September.

  • Gives back to our families and children in Child Welfare through toy drives and a gift-wrapping event in December.

  • Gives back to our children during the back-to-school season through in-kind school supply drives and support at our August Back 2 School Fair.

"To me, being a part of something bigger than me is so important and the House has helped me find that. Hearing personal stories is my favorite part of volunteering.  It is great seeing individuals lift each other up and invest in themselves."
