We strongly believe that every person has a skill or talent that can be utilized in one of our programs or services. We have entry-level volunteer projects that you can complete on your own time in your own home; we have hands-on opportunities in our crisis nurseries; and everything in between. All opportunities help in furthering the mission of the Family Support Center: protecting children, strengthening families, and preventing child abuse.
To become a volunteer, there are just a few steps to complete:
- Complete an Application
- Schedule a New Volunteer Interview, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com
- Complete a Background Check: This step is for ALL volunteers over the age of 18 and is required for anyone working with children.

You can make a difference in a child's life. Here is how you can help:
- Play with and care for children ages 0-11 years in our Crisis Nursery.
- Provide child care for children whose parents are attending parenting and/or life focus classes for one or two hours per week.
- Assist with outreach by helping at community resource fairs, handing out flyers and answering people's questions about our agency.
- Support the office staff with sorting files, answering phones, and preparing class packets.
- Help us with yard work and other household maintenance items that will enhance the stay of the children in the Crisis Nursery.
- Take a copy of our "wish list" and conduct a drive for items on the list (for example: diapers, wipes, formula, paper products).
- Help with celebratory events for children and families such as putting together eggs for the annual egg hunt or helping with other holiday events.
