Give Hands-On Support to Your Community

At Family & Children Services, there are many volunteer opportunities to help those in need by donating your time and talents.

Our volunteers are crucial to achieving our mission to help strengthen the lives of children, individuals, and families. We welcome these volunteers to donate their time on a regular schedule, for annual projects, or a one-time commitment.

Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals, groups, and families. Fill out our volunteer form to express your interest and be matched with a need!

For more information or to sign up today, contact Resource Development Coordinator Heather Videto by calling 269.344.0202 or email.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Becoming a foster parent.
  • Organizing a diaper or personal care product drive for our Year-Round Pantry.
  • Collecting books and board games for our Family Center Resource Room.
  • Assisting with clerical tasks in our offices.
  • Supporting a child or family we serve for the holidays by purchasing gifts on their wish list.
  • Volunteer during Holiday Giving to help sort gifts from donors and distribute them to clients.
  • Helping maintain our gardens and landscaping throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
  • Educating others about the work of Family & Children Services at fairs and festivals.

To protect the privacy and safety of our clients, we may require Central Registry Clearance and Confidentiality Agreements to be completed prior to working in certain volunteer capacities.


“My family and I would like to thank you so very much for the donations. Because of your generosity, we still have our apartment to call home. Times have been so very hard the past year with the lack of work and the cold winter. I, as a father, haven’t been able to provide a steady enough income for my family. We thank you all so very much! You’ve shown, in more than words, how important it is to give.”
