Lend a hand. Change a life.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Family Services’ programs. Volunteer crisis counselors complete a certificated 40-hour training course and answer our domestic violence and sexual assault hotlines and respond to crisis situations in person. Because of them, confidential crisis services are available every day of the year, 24 hours a day. These incredible community members volunteer on a regular schedule during their evenings, weekends, and holidays.

Other individuals and groups pitch in with administrative support, special projects, donation drives, facility maintenance, or fundraising events. Last year, our volunteers gave more than 7,500 hours of their time—that’s the equivalent of more than four full time employees.
