A little time goes a long way.
How you can volunteer.
Family & Children’s Place offers several different types of volunteer opportunities for those looking to help us better our community.
Certain positions require that the volunteer:
- Be at least 16 years old.
- Commit to at least two volunteer sessions per month for six months.
- Provide references, application, and current tuberculosis test results.
- Submit to background checks and training.
Administrative volunteers serve primarily at our Family Service Center, assisting staff by managing our front desk. Responsibilities include greeting visitors and buzzing them into the building, answering phones, data entry, filing, and creating client files. This is the perfect fit for students or anyone who may want to use down time to do homework, read, knit, etc.
Shifts include: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Kentucky and Indiana offices.
Event volunteers help with fundraisers and other special events throughout the year. No long-term commitment is required.
Our program volunteers work directly with children in our school-based services or assist with childcare while parents meet privately with therapists for counseling. Program volunteers are asked to make a regular or long-time commitment.
