The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Family Outreach is a friendly team of dedicated and involved volunteers working together to prevent child abuse and neglect in our community. We have numerous programs and committees that support our mission and can be matched up to everyone's specific interests and expertise.
Family Outreach is a strong servant to the community. Just read the stats on child abuse and neglect in your community and you'll begin to recognize the needs of children and families.
Programs at Family Outreach help families find better ways to manage the demands of parenting. You can personally help a family by becoming a case work volunteer or join in the many other aspects of volunteering. It's a rewarding and educational experience.
Our ever-popular, annual bowl-a-thon is each fall.

I have been associated with Family Outreach for approximately 1 year. I feel the work they do is very fulfilling and worthwhile - what could be better than seeing families become stronger and benefit from education and resources. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities to become involved in and a great group of women to work with.

I have volunteered for Family Outreach for 10 years. During this time I have served in many roles learning new things and meeting other volunteers. I mentor a family and find this fulfilling work; I make a real difference in a family's well being. Great group to work with.
