How to Get Involved in Your Community

120x-scribble-volunteersIf you want to make a real, hands-on impact in your community, volunteer in one of our programs. JF&CS' volunteers truly are the heart and soul of our agency and they make a difference through the work that they do. Our hundreds of volunteers contribute thousands of hours each year.

How to Become a Volunteer

  1. Decide how much time you have.
    Whether it’s one day a month or one day a year, we can find something that fits your schedule.

  2. Determine how you would like to get involved.
    We can find something that will match your interests. Drive seniors to doctor appointments or other places they need to go. Help plan events or decorate Renterpieces. You can spend time with a Little PAL, an adult with a developmental disability (PACT), a Holocaust survivor (Connections) or visit the sick (Bikkur Cholim). Or assist our job seekers with their resumes or mock interviews. And the list goes on!
