Read a story. Teach a class. Plan a fun(d)raiser. 

Our community volunteers are the very heart of the Family Promise model. Volunteer opportunities include serving on one of our committees, helping write fundraising grants, assisting with child care during our Keys to Good Tenancy program, or preparing and serving a meal to class participants.

Current Committees:

Shelter - responsible for developing the operational requirements and resources needed to establish a transitional shelter for homeless families

Fundraising - responsible for identifying and executing fundraising drives, including grant writing

Marketing - responsible for reviewing and developing marketing materials, including brochures, and new content for the website, and social media

Volunteer  FAQs


How much time do I need to commit?

That depends on how much time you can give and the type of volunteer opportunity that interests you. For those with a little bit of time, helping at a special event works well. Whereas volunteering to participate on one of our committees or teach financial literacy and technology skills is best for volunteers who are capable of a longer time commitment.

Can I volunteer one-time or do I have to make an ongoing commitment?

Family Promise volunteers can have a lasting impact on a family’s life without making a huge time commitment. One-time volunteer opportunities – such as helping at a special event or participating in a supply drive – exist and work well for those with full schedules. There are also plenty of opportunities for volunteers who are available to make a more long-term, regular commitment.

Can I volunteer with my family?

We offer opportunities for entire families to volunteer. For example, families often enjoy volunteering during our Keys to Good Tenancy program, when they can share a meal with our participating families and children can enjoy some play time together.

What are the hours during which volunteers can help?

Family Promise offers volunteer opportunities during the day, in the evening, and on weekends. Scheduling depends on the type of volunteer activity. For example, volunteers providing child care or homework help will do so in the evenings or on the weekends. 

Do you offer virtual volunteer opportunities?

Yes, virtual volunteers are welcome. Virtual volunteers can help with marketing, social media, fundraising, and even some administrative tasks.
