PSF’s network of Resource Centers offer a dynamic new approach to meeting the needs of local communities by providing easily accessible, non-stigmatizing locations for individuals and families to seek a variety of services and supports. Our Resource Centers are often seen as a "one-stop-shop" for local resources, ranging anywhere from clothing closets and food pantries to financial literacy for adults and afterschool programs for children. These resources are made available through both formal and informal partnerships with more than 40 community agencies.
Volunteering here means offering real-life change to families who are ready to improve their lives. You’re not just tutoring afterschool, you’re helping students reach graduation and college. You’re not just answering phones, you’re connecting parents to critical resources. You’re helping to create a safe environment for families to receive support and develop resiliency. We’re looking for volunteers and interns who are consistent and committed to serving each week, during normal business hours, for at least one semester.
Our three Gainesville branches are located at the Library Partnership Resource Center (northeast), the Cone Park Library (southeast) and the SWAG Family Resource Center within the Linton Oaks neighborhood (southwest).
