Volunteer

You can help West Michigan families thrive

Our volunteers are essential to our work in building resilient and safe families, supporting children, and strengthening our community. We couldn’t reach the number of families we do without the generous time, talents and energy our incredible volunteers offer. 

In 2021 alone, our volunteers served 4,777 hours—which translates to $136,329 in staff salary savings that could be applied directly to our family services instead.

If you share our passion for helping all West Michigan children and families thrive, please reach out and we’d love to find a place for you on our team.

Volunteer opportunities

Whether you’re looking for short term, occasional, or regular opportunities, we’re flexible about getting you involved with something that works for you. Volunteers are free to set their own schedule during normal business hours (Monday-Thursday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Friday, 8:30 am – 3 pm). We have opportunities virtually or in-office. We even have an awesome playroom so your little ones can come along with you!

Mailing support

Help prepare and assemble the communications that go directly to our families. This activity is great for groups or can be done alone.

Data entry

Work with computers and software to enter data points and enrollment numbers into our database. If you’re detail-oriented, this is the team for you.

Event support

Represent Family Futures in the community. If you like attending local events and talking with people, you’d love our event team.

Office organization

Ensure that our most current documents are saved and our out-of-date materials are shredded. This may seem small, but it is crucial in freeing up our staff to focus on service to our families.
