Volunteer

Faith in Action

Volunteers are Safe Families. We don’t simply need your support each month, we need you! Even if you don’t have a lot of time to donate, we have roles for you. It takes an entire team to surround a child and family to make this work.

How Can You Help Keep a Family Intact?
