Housing Families’ growth relies on our board, committees, and volunteers who dedicate time, talent, and expertise to moving our mission forward! The various services we provide offers numerous opportunities for involvement that can be tailored to your interests.
GREAT Youth & Families Tutoring Program
Our largest volunteer program is our GYFP after-school tutors, where no teaching experience is necessary to volunteer. After-school tutors work one-on-one or in small groups with children to complete homework and play academic games. All volunteers will receive training and support to ensure your volunteer experience is both productive and enjoyable.
Community Resource Program
As our pantry continues to grow, we require assistance with managing donations and the distribution of goods. Join us to sort food and housewares, unload supplies, and/or make deliveries to families.
If you’re planning a company outing or volunteer day, or are involved in a community group, we welcome your help! From property maintenance projects at our properties, to volunteering at our pantry, our volunteer opportunities will engage your entire group. Contact us to discuss options and identify how your organization can make the most impact in the communities we support.
Board of Directors
Board members have a unique opportunity to serve as part the governing body of the organization. Their purpose is to set policy, perform short term and long-term planning and oversee the financial viability of the agency. Board members will take further action by connecting with other dedicated donors and volunteers, and nurturing a community of giving.
Committee members are volunteers who are assist in furthering the Housing Families’ mission through non-Board service. Volunteer opportunities include participation with staff and board members on the following:
- Development Committee: supporting our fundraising efforts
- Property Committee: providing guidance for efficient property management of our real estate portfolio
- Medical Advisory Committee: enhancing our programming with medically-informed services and partnerships to provide culturally competent care to those we serve
- Education Committee: building partnerships and strategizing to help us meet the educational needs of the clients we serve, from early childhood to continuing education
