Family Promise of Monroe County relies on volunteers for a variety of jobs. We keep a database of volunteers with special talents, for example: administrative, carpentry, child care, health and wellness, resume writing, etc. All volunteers are encouraged to inform us of any skills that they possess and can share, on an “as needed” basis. Family Promise is always seeking individuals with professional expertise who are willing to provide necessary services such as lawyer, dentist, pediatrician, or psychologist.
Please see the list below for ongoing volunteer needs.

“Each time we make room for strangers, we chip away at the fear and isolation and heartbreak in our world. We also get to participate in something that is life giving, both to us and the people we welcome.”
