Our Volunteers support the families of the Hope for Families Center in the ways that best fits with their background and experience. Whether its support with computer literacy, preparing meals, or as a mentor, our volunteers are valuable to ensuring the success of our families and our mission. Just like all of our staff, volunteers must go through a rigorous background screening to keep our families safe.

I am constantly humbled by the families I meet at Hope For Families Center. I meet mothers who finally feel safe after fleeing domestic violence, children who are excited to finally have the school supplies necessary to complete their homework, and fathers who are appreciative of the guidance and support the Hope For Families team offers. The work that is being done for these families is immeasurable. - Debra, Case Manager
