This is a great organization that benefits families of children who have disabilities. I volunteered for 9 months last year and loved it. Their budget is small and they do a lot amazing things with it. I recommend emailing volunteer@supportforfamilies.org or call the warmline (415-920-5040) and say you want to volunteer.

Did not receive a response of contact regarding a need to volunteer when I was dedicated to volunteering at the time.
