About

Help with Childcare

Family & Children’s Agency offers an array of services through its Child and Family Development Programs. In general, these programs provide support, guidance, and classes for both mothers and fathers to develop effective parenting skills and to build a strong foundation for their families. Volunteers are always needed to watch young children while moms attend their Circle of Security group or their MOMS groups.

We are always needing volunteers to provide childcare for infants and toddlers. FCA runs various groups throughout the year usually once a week in the morning. We look for one or two adults to watch the children for 2 to 2.5 hours once a week. Days/times vary depending on the specific group. The number of children also varies from week to week.

Family & Children’s Agency is a leading non-profit, human service organization that is committed to increasing the social and emotional well-being of our clients. We provide strength-based, solution focused services that respond to the individual needs of children & families, youth, adults, and seniors.

Last year more than 10,000 individuals of all ages and all walks of life experienced life-altering, positive changes as a result of their work with Family & Children’s Agency.
