About

The YWCA Family Center is looking for volunteers to provide meals for homeless families at our unique facility in Northeast Columbus

The Family Center is a 24-hour temporary housing facility for homeless families that serves up to 50 families per night. Families are assigned family advocates to help them find safe and affordable permanent housing. Residents have access to our employment resource room, laundry facilities, child advocates, on-site
"Safe and Sound" licensed day care center and after school programs.

Residents are provided with three meals and two snacks per day. The Family Center depends ENTIRELY on the donations and volunteer efforts of generous community members to provide dinners. We typically look for groups of 10-15 individuals to provide, prepare, serve and clean. Organize your friends, co-workers, family, congregation, etc.!

There are two options for volunteers:

1. Bring in enough food to serve upwards of 200 people and prepare it in our fully-equipped kitchen.
An example of a typical meal: Lasagna, Corn, Salad, Cookies, Lemonade

2. Make a $500 donation (covers the cost of food and staffing). Our staff will provide and prepare the meal and you and your fellow volunteers can help us set up, serve and clean up.
