Volunteering is a rewarding experience

Volunteers are critical to our mission.

We organize more than 9,000 volunteer hours annually.

Caring volunteers provide nutritious meals with homeless guests. They provide a listening ear and a loving heart when they take the time to sit and talk with guests. Networking with members of the community is a big advantage for our homeless families. They garner strength and encouragement and often secure new opportunities for employment through the vast network of volunteers who support the mission. Volunteers also sleep overnight at each host location. Volunteering as a sleeper is one of the easiest ways to “serve others” as you sleep! “Office angels” volunteer for answering phones or helping with mailings. Our volunteers also assist with fundraising events.

Do you want to experience the rewarding feeling that our volunteers get knowing they have significantly impacted a family’s future?  Tell us how you can help below.

I am interested in the following activities:
Fellowship – I can listen, share a book or a movie, play board games, etc. from 7 to 9pmI can sleep over at a host location. 9pm – 6amI can offer some time as an office angel answering phones, etc.I can offer some expertise on a committee (Property, Public Relations, Host Site Recruiting, Fundraising)I am interested in serving on the board for Family Promise

We’ve been collecting resumes through Facebook jobs posts and shares, two help wanted ads in the Times News and a Linked In job post. Candidate interviews will begin next week. We’ve sought the help of our neighboring affiliates and the national Family Promise organization to help frame the job description. They’ve provided useful salary data from other networks so we can compare ourselves to other rural affiliates as well as the national salary average. Every day is an opportunity to learn and we have taken the past few weeks to reflect on how we can continue to drive the mission of helping homeless families within the very effective Family Promise model.
