Mission Statement

The CFVC's mission is match volunteers and agencies with service opportunities in Southeastern NC. We also provide direct and indirect services, including the Big Buddy Program (mentoring for at risk youth), free home repair (Reach the Beach), Kids Voting (mock voting for youth 5-18), Community Service, and National Days of Service opportunities.


The CVFC was formed in 1997 to mobilize volunteers and resources to identify and deliver creative, effective solutions to community needs by volunteers. The CVFC was founded in the wake of Hurricane Fran. The need addressed by the CVFC is that of providing support for non-profit organizations, community events and initiatives through the effective recruitment, training, referral and stewardship of volunteers and directors of volunteers, as well as planning programs and/or collaborations. In order to keep the VC running and meeting the needs of the community agencies it needs funding. The CFVC makes those matches for individuals, corporations, schools, and churches. We register the volunteers and then place them with the agency that best suits their time and availability. We are the place that the schools turn to find community service opportunities for their youth;

It is a priviledge to get to feed into the lives of such deserving children and to get to work with such wonderful volunteers. There is a waiting list of children hoping more people will volunteer.
