Volunteer Trainings

Equipped volunteers change the future for families facing homelessness.

By working to be a volunteer, you are becoming a family champion. 

Family champions are normal people with a passion to end family homelessness in our community. Family champions are advocates.

Family champions are heroes.


And, all heroes require training! Please take some time to watch these training videos & read the article. In all, this training takes less than 1 hour to complete. They provide a quick orientation on family homelessness, Family Promise and why volunteers matter to the mission. You're encouraged to keep an open mind and approach this as a way to learn about something you've never encountered before.
