Our volunteers help us to meet and greet our families as well as respond to their questions and needs. A variety of activities require the assistance of our valued volunteers. Without the love and devotion of volunteers, the Family Room could not function and many families would have no place to go for comfort during one of the most difficult times of their lives.
Volunteer opportunities are available seven days a week in three hour shifts: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., 12 p.m. - 3 p.m., 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
