Volunteer for The Center for Family Safety and Healing

Volunteer at The Center for Family Safety and Healing

The Center for Family Safety and Healing relies on volunteers to accomplish a number of goals.  Our volunteers set the tone of a positive experience by providing children with an outlet for their anxieties through play. With over 3,000 children and families served each year, time spent smiling and playing with children is our most critical need in the various programs.  Along with needing volunteers at our facility, we also have opportunities to participate in special projects such as:

  • Volunteering for the New Albany Classic Invitational Grand Prix & Family Day. The Classic is our main fundraiser and is traditionally held the last Sunday in September;
  • wrapping gifts at the holidays for children in programs here at the Center;
  • coordinating a toy drive. Toy drives help to defray the cost, bring great joy to a child who receives the toy after being assessed for abuse and allows community groups  the  opportunity to donate to a worthy cause  
  • working with parenting groups, assisting with administrative duties, etc.
