Volunteer Sign Up

JFCS volunteers and interns bring talent, education, experience, and generosity to help make a difference in the lives of our clients. Interns recruited from Master of Social Work and other programs at local universities bolster our clinical and case management services and administrative capacity. Interns and volunteers help to administer our large volume of Emergency Aid services and provide companionship and homemaking services to isolated seniors. We are grateful to each and every volunteer that helps us make a difference in the lives of our clients!
