Board of Directors

Alongside Tara’s Parent is an OUTSTANDING board of directors. These ladies, well most of them have been with the Houstons and volunteered their precious time since the beginning. 

Meet the board...

Tirelessly these amazing women give Taraboom their very precious time to help with some pretty amazing families. Thanks will never be enough for all each and everyone does here. 

Amazing to have this strength in a board to do what we do, and what we have done for over 20 years now, and as well as we do it. 

You can’t do this volunteer job without it touching your heart.

As great as they are…. they are sometimes a little difficult to herd together for this photo op! Pictures coming soon! 

Volunteers do not necessarily
have the time; they have the heart.

Be sure to get in touch!

Volunteers Needed!

While we try to do it all sometimes ~ it is physically impossible to visit or get to all the families in our coverage area. 
That’s where you can help!

We are looking to spread Taraboom all through Southwestern Ontario as outlined in our assistance area map. From the shores of Lake Erie to northern shores of Lake Huron. 

As the Foundation grows, and our need to help reaches all across SWO, we are always on the lookout for compassionate, professional individuals to take on the various roles as Community Outreach Volunteers. You won’t go it alone and you will get full board support every step of the way.

TIA for your consideration in volunteering with us… we look forward to hearing from you!
