Family Promise Metrowest offers a unique opportunity for busy families to volunteer together. Whether you want to volunteer for a few hours or are looking for an ongoing opportunity for your family to engage in making real change, there are many ways to join us as family volunteers.

At Our Day Center

Our offices and family shelter are in our Day Center on Mulligan Street. The shelter is our families’ home during their stay with us. It’s where they keep their belongings, meet with coaches, get ready for their day at work or school, and relax on the weekends. Volunteers are needed for the following opportunities:

Meal Preparation: Does your family enjoy cooking together? You can prepare a meal at home as a family and deliver it to the Day Center. Prepared dinners are provided for our families in shelter four days a week.

Dinner Hosting: When families arrive back at the Day Center after work, school, or daycare, volunteers greet them, have dinner together, and stay for the evening until around 8:30. During this time you can get to know our families, play games with younger children, and offer support as needed, allowing families to relax after a long day.

Childcare: If one of your children enjoys babysitting, you can volunteer to babysit together while our parents participate in workshops, meetings,  or special events at the Day Center. 

Office Volunteers: On the weekends, adult volunteers can help us with answering the phone and being a welcoming presence for our guests while their children can engage in activities with younger guests.

At Our Events

If your family enjoys physical activity, we suggest you join us in April for our annual walkathon. This is a wonderful community event with food, music, and activities for the children. With hundreds of people attending, your family will be part of a community committed to ending family homelessness. For more information about upcoming events, please see our Events Page.
