Family Promise of Washington County Building Community - Strengthening Lives

Volunteer Opportunities

Family Promise House

Family Promise relies on the support of volunteers from the community assist staff to provide a safe caring, supportive shelter program for homeless families with children. There are a variety of ways individuals and organizations can help. Trained volunteers help staff the shelter, provide a supportive environment of care, help with donations, perform administrative tasks, help with laundry, interact with parents and engage children in activities each day. Volunteer opportunities at the Shelter House include week day and week end shifts.
