Become a Nanny Angel! 
 
Imagine a world where every mother with cancer receives the care needed for her children – so she has enough time to care for herself. Now, also imagine a world where every child receives the support they need to cope with their mother’s illness or death.  
The Nanny Angel Network (NAN) offers rewarding positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.  
 
Nanny Angels provide free, specialized in-home relief childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period. Nanny Angels lessen the impact of cancer on families, by engaging children in enjoyable, age-appropriate activities to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing as a result of their mom’s illness or death. By visiting weekly, building trust and having fun, Nanny Angels help mothers gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest or attend appointments, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers. 
 
Nanny Angels receive specialized training in children’s grief and bereavement and receive the support of NAN’s Child Life Specialist.

Mission and Vision: Yellow Brick House provides services in York Region to women and children who have experienced or witnessed violence and abuse. We are committed to challenging and eradicating the beliefs, values, systems and structures that support and perpetuate sexism and violence against women. 
 
Mandate of the Board: A non-profit charitable organization established in 1978, Yellow Brick House is managed by a community-based volunteer Board of Directors who plan, set policy, and ensure adequate resources are available to fulfill our mission. There are up to 12 Board members. The Board meets regularly with the Executive Director to monitor agency progress and needs, and provide direction. The ED is responsible for day-to-day operations and is a resource to the Board. Board members do not engage in direct service activities with clients. 
 
Board Application Process: Interested volunteers are invited to submit a current resume and letter of interest. The Executive Director and Board Chair will meet with selected candidates. References will be requested and a Vulnerable Sector Check will be required. The current Board will review the applications and bring recommendations to the membership at the Annual General Meeting in June. Board members are elected for a 3-year term. Should a vacancy arise, it may be filled through election by Board members at their regular meetings and ratified by the membership at the next AGM. A New Board Member Orientation is offered to incoming Board members. 
 
Committees Each Board Member participates in at least one committee. 
1. Governance Committee
