MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IFCS VolunteerCore Logo RGB

Integrated Family Community Services is a small organization with a large impact. Regularly scheduled or episodic, individual volunteers, families or small volunteer groups, all help staff complete the day-to-day tasks involved in serving our community. Volunteers and staff work together at food collection and distribution, administration, and special events.

IFCS relies on the generous donation of volunteer time to accomplish the mission of nourishing lives, and volunteers often find their own lives nourished in the process. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator with any questions, or to begin a conversation.

Please note: IFCS asks that volunteers be fully vaccinated OR receive a negative test from a free community testing site within 7 days of each opportunity.

The Volunteer Program nurtures community engagement to accomplish IFCS’ mission through recruitment, education, and training of volunteers to ensure equitable delivery of programs and services.

• Weekly Individual Opportunities

After making a VolunteerHub account and choosing the preferred activity, volunteers will complete a profile. Once a profile is complete, volunteers wishing to volunteer regularly will choose a time to complete orientation at our facility before signing up for volunteer shifts. Orientation and Background Check required for all weekly volunteers.
