Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Vineyard Family Services is a compassionate faith-based organization reaching out to the families of the Birmingham Metro area to address the underlying needs that exist in broken and fatherless families by providing programs to strengthen families, support parents and nontraditional caretakers in strength-based, goal-directed parenting and to empower youth and children to make healthy life decisions.
Vineyard Family Services' primary programs are its F.I.T. DAD Program and Backpack Buddies. The F.I.T. (Fatherhood Initiative Training) DAD Program is provided to non-custodial fathers within Shelby County, Alabama. The F.I.T. DAD Program is a second chance program for men to be successful fathers by supporting their families financially, morally and emotionally. We work with men to help them overcome the obstacles that have hindered them and caused them not to meet their responsibilities as fathers. We help men find employment, obtain a GED, know their legal rights, work through past and present issues as well as help them make better overall life decisions. The Backpack Buddies program is designed to fight hunger in Shelby County. VFS delivers food to various Shelby County Schools bi-monthly. Every first Saturday of the month, we have packing parties. We pack over 1000 weekend meals each month. Come join us at 9 a.m. on the second floor of the Serv-pro building located at 2000 Huntley Pkwy, Pelham, AL.
