These volunteers have the most direct contact with HFC members by providing one-to-one support for HFC members at daily programs. Program volunteers work under the guidance of HFC staff to ensure a quality experience for our members in a safe environment. We encourage our program volunteers to make a longer term commitment to the organization and to share their hobbies and interests with HFC.
These volunteers have less direct interaction with HFC members, but their impact is invaluable to our community relations and fundraising efforts. Your investment of a few hours (or a few days) of your time and talents will help ensure the long term viability of HFC programming.
These volunteers have no direct contact with HFC members but their skills contribute to organizational efficiency so that more of our resources can be directed toward member programming. Office volunteers bring specific skill sets that enhance the behind-the-scenes operations and external communications. Examples include IT, marketing and fundraising expertise.
Become a Volunteer
Four Easy Steps!
1. Fill out the Volunteer Application. The information in this form is kept confidential. It gives HFC your contact information to move forward in the process of becoming a volunteer.
2. Next, you will be contacted by HFC to conduct a brief phone interview. The purpose of the phone interview is for HFC to get to know you, your interests and availability.
3. After the phone interview, you will be asked to complete the HFC Background Check form. This is a standard consent to a background check as completed by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. HFC requires a background check of all staff and volunteers that work directly with HFC members.
4. The final step in becoming a volunteer of HFC is to attend Volunteer Orientation. Volunteer Orientation is a brief meeting with the Program Director that occurs monthly for any new volunteers. It prepares you for your role as a volunteer.
