Chasdei Hindy is our Young Volunteers program for volunteers age 16+. This service was started in 2006 by a group of young people, friends of Hindy Grunwald, a young girl who died suddenly that year, at age 15. Hindy was a dedicated volunteer who loved helping families and children and her legacy of support and caring lives on in the hearts of our growing team of young volunteers who are perpetuating her mission by supporting families with young children.

Our volunteers are from local schools and colleges and each year our successful recruitment drives attracts new members. All our volunteers must join a comprehensive induction and training program which includes Child Protection. Our volunteers assist with families of young children some of whom are disabled and provide support with feeding, bathing, bedtime and homework.
