About

JF&CS Shoulder to Shoulder is a family-centered, peer-to-peer program offering weekly in-home visits to support military families faced with the challenges that accompany military service. Volunteers are veterans, spouses, parents, and other military-connected community members. They bring their unique perspective as members of the military community who understand the extraordinary pressures of military family life.

The program is looking for dedicated, compassionate volunteers to visit with military families in their home for up to one hour weekly. Candidate must be military-connected (spouse, parent, sibling, etc. of someone who has served, or service member who has previously served) and have the flexibility to attend a bi-monthly, 1.5 hour supervision group.

This position requires approximately 8-10 hours per month and a commitment of one year. Volunteers will be supervised by a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) who has extensive experience working with children and military families.
