As the COVID-19 pandemic closes schools and transforms learning into a virtual experience, we know our children are going to need more help than ever staying on track. We are seeking volunteers willing to work one-on-one with our kids on meeting academic targets in this new virtual environment. Fill out the form above to let us know you are interested!
Provide the gift of transportation and help get our families to their appointments by driving our 12-passenger van for 3-hour shifts. We can work around your schedule! Give us a call if you are comfortable driving big vans. Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed!
On Saturdays, we invite 1-2 volunteers at a time into the building to do fun activities around the shelter - bake a special treat with our kids, organize an amazing craft, help garden, do Zumba or plug in however we can best use your talents!
Every child should have an opportunity to celebrate their special days! Help our families celebrate birthdays, holidays and milestones by providing materials and running fun activities! Fill out the Volunteer Form above to get connected.
Help us with one of our most critical and exciting jobs... Moving families into their new homes! We need strong and reliable volunteers to help.
Check out the description below.
A great project for a group! Keep our families warm and snug by making fleece tie blankets for them to use in shelter and take to their new home. Please note: we can only accept blankets that are twin-size or larger. We cannot accept lap blankets.
A great way for groups to do some Community Service is with our Welcome Home Team. The third Saturday of each month Family Promise takes furniture to families who have moved out of our homeless shelter and into their own homes.
Volunteering would mean that a group adopts one of the Saturday's of the year, brings about 6-8 strong and able volunteers. The group will pick up furniture around the Buffalo community with a U-Haul and deliver the furniture to our families' homes.
The day starts at 9:30 am at Family Promise and goes no later than 2 pm.
Why is this important?
When our families leave our shelter they often leave in need of kitchen tables, chairs, couches, beds, to name the biggest items. We have gracious donors who give us amazing pieces of furniture, but need help transporting this furniture!
This is why we have formed a volunteer base to help support our families get into the home they want.
Groups may sign up for this volunteer opportunity as far in advance as needed. Please send us an email using the form below for additional information.
