VOLUNTEER

Step 1: If you are new to our program, your first step is simple. Attend our monthly Education Event where you will learn more about each of the programs offered. You will get answers to your questions, and hopefully be prepared to jump in at the level you are comfortable with.

Step 2: If you have already attended one of our Education Events  (and have submitted a background check), you are ready to explore some of the volunteer opportunities listed below.

Foster Youth & Families offers a variety of ways to serve. There are large events throughout the year where you can sign up to host/volunteer. And there are weekly/monthly serve opportunities in each of our ministries.

Below you will find a list of the ministries that offer regular serve options.
