About

Family Centers is looking for enthusiastic adults or college/ high school students to work in collaboration with our Resident Service Coordinators at our various public housing locations to facilitate recreational, social and educational activities. If you have a special talent or interest and you are willing to share it with others, this could be the perfect volunteer opportunity! Activities can meet weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or even just once, depending on the volunteer's availability and the nature of the activity. Day of the week and times are flexible.


Individuals and families utilize the career, educational counselling, goal planning, work readiness, life skills and family support services of the Reaching Independence through Employment (RITE) program as tools to reach a higher level of self-sufficiency and healthy interdependence. The RITE Program Coordinators guide the participants throughout, using a model of continuous evaluation and encouraging participant self-assessment along the way. Participants can engage in individualized and group based support focusing on resume writing, interview skills, the job search, LinkedIn and other web-based tools, financial literacy and more. Referrals to numerous agencies for basic needs, computer training and job skills training are also provided.

The RITE Program is free of charge and is open to residents living in or near lower Fairfield County.
