Volunteers are an integral part of the Center for Family Health culture. Our volunteers are diverse in age and interest, yet share a generosity of spirit. We offer a variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities to support our patients and community. The minimum age to volunteer is 16 years old.

Here's what others say about volunteering:

"I love volunteering at the Center. It makes me feel great that I am able to help children and be a part of the work in keeping kids healthy." - Deborah Herbert  

"Volunteering here at the Center helps me learn more about the health-care arena. I am looking forward to reading to children in the pediatrics and dental area." - Nora Ghali  

Volunteering Opportunities  

Events Assistants

The Center is looking for individuals who can assist in planning and organizing fundraising events, programs and facility tours. 

Volunteer Readers

The Center hopes to find individuals who are able and willing to sit and read to individuals and small groups of children during their waiting times.

Voter and Advocacy Coordinators

The Center needs individuals who can assist patients in registering to vote; and collect signatures, write support letters and participate in other advocacy-oriented activities.  

General Hosts

Individuals who are willing to assist patients in completing forms also are needed.  These people also would answer questions and help patients learn more about the Center and its services. 
General Volunteer opportunities are available, including activities such as stuffing envelopes for mailings, assisting with short-term projects or helping with other projects.
