Volunteering at Daybreak


We're grateful for our committeed volunteers. Every year they generously contribute over 2,000 hours of tutoring, recreational activities, clerical and bakery support, and maintenance assistance.

If your questions about our volunteer opportunities and requirements aren't answered here, please contact Sean Mitchell at 937-395-4600 ext. 126.

  • Child Care Aides provide nurturing care to residents' babies
    and toddlers in our facility while their parents attend on-site trainings.
