Volunteer and Service Opportunities

Another very important reason for Jacob's Well is to provide a place where the body of Christ can serve outside the walls of the church. There are many opportunities for individuals and groups to help serve at the Well ranging from a quarterly deep cleaning of the facility, interacting with the women, to ongoing construction needs. We have had many churches bless us with serve day opportunities for their church body.

If you are interested in serving in any of the areas listed below, contact us by phone at (812) 288-8870 or email us at info@jacobswellproject.com.

Women & Women's Groups:

There are so many things women individually or as a group can share with our precious families... cooking or baking your favorite recipes, teaching them how to sew on a button or hem a garment, crafts, just doing something fun together. In all of these activities the most important thing is relationships. Community and building strong healthy relationships are key to restoring their lives.

Transportation:

As we continue to grow and serve more single mother families, we will need volunteers to help with transportation. Our families do not have vehicles to take themselves to appointments and offsite classes. We have a van that can be use by volunteers to transport our participants. We are hoping to get several female volunteers that are willing to give one day a week to serve in this capacity. Daytime and evening needs are available. Call us for more information.


Best Friend Forever (BFF) Teams:

The "Best Friend Forever" program at Jacob’s Well is very unique. Traditionally,

mentorship takes place in a one-on-one setting. However, in our mission and vision to minister to and restore the whole person, research shows a team approach is often more effective. BFF Teams provide a participant family with a social network of support, encouragement, accountability and friendship. The advantages of using a BFF team include:


  • Increases a network of friendship accessibility for the participating family.

  • Shares responsibility amongst the BFF team—without overwhelming one individual.

  • Provides a diverse network of life experiences and connections from which the participating family can learn and grow.

Volunteers from local congregations form a group of 4 to 6 mentors to walk alongside each participating family. The BFF team provides support and friendship throughout the service period and beyond. Having a diverse group of friends allows for a broader spectrum of support. The BFFs are essential contributors to the restoration of participating families.
