Volunteers have historically played a major part in the delivery of services to clients who are victims of violence in the agencies 40 years. From helping care for children to assisting with phone calls, to helping at the Thrift Store; volunteers are one of our largest assets at Friends of the Family. Our volunteers make it possible for us to give our clients excellent service. Whether you can give an hour a month or several hours a week, we would be honored to have your help. In 2019 our volunteers provided 24,566 volunteer hours! We cannot do it alone!
