For the health and safety of our residents and employees, Volunteers are currently restricted from visiting Exceptional Care for Children.
In lieu of interacting directly with our residents here at ECC, we are currently offering Virtual Volunteer opportunities.

For an updated list of Virtual Volunteer opportunities, please reach out to Emily Holcombe.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) partners with community, religious and school organizations
from all over 
Delaware and the surrounding areas.

Service projects are based on the current needs of ECC, and may include:

  • Landscaping
  • Creating decorations for holidays or birthday parties
  • Setting up for special events
  • Special Activities with ECC Children
  • Organizing Donations
  • Sanitizing Toys
  • And more!


If your group would love to volunteer at ECC, please contact  

Each volunteer must complete our Group Volunteer Form. Volunteers under 18 years old, must have their form signed by a parent or guardian. Completed forms can be brought the day of your group’s visit to ECC.

Groups can volunteer in 1 hour or 2 hour time blocks.

Volunteer groups can have anywhere between 5 and 15 volunteers.

Don’t hesitate to contact Emily Holcombe with any other questions.
