Program Volunteer

Because of the nature of the confidential care being delivered by our agency, a select group of experienced CFS volunteers may be invited to assist with client support groups. This level of volunteering requires a commitment to an on-going, regular schedule for an extended period of time. The placement process includes a background check, an application and an interview with CFS staff members. These volunteer assignments are made by the careful matching of client needs with the skills and interests of the volunteer. Learn more about these amazing volunteers here.
