Volunteer 

Thank you for your interest in joining Center for Children and Families, Inc. Volunteers
are critical to the success of our agency. You can be part of the hundreds of volunteers
who help heal children, empower youth and strengthen families. There are countless
ways to get involved! We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, available year-round,
for individuals and organizations who are interested in making a difference in a child’s
life. All participants must be 18 or older to volunteer in direct services with clients;
however youth under age 18 may volunteer with direct adult supervision in special
circumstances.

CCFI does not provide volunteer opportunities for court-ordered community service.


Our Mission

Every day we dedicate our lives to create better and brighter futures for children and families in our community by carrying out our mission to heal children, empower youth and strengthen families. Together, we can work toward giving every child the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, because every child deserves to grow up safe, nurtured and loved. 


Our Promise to Protect Children 

CCFI provides a safe environment for children and youth to heal and grow. Our agency works to protect those we serve from abuse and maltreatment by carefully screening staff and volunteers, providing training on topics such as physical, emotional and sexual abuse awareness and prevention, and by continually monitoring adult-child relationships.
