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 The FPM Center

Our offices and family shelter are in The FPM Center on Mulligan Street. The shelter is the 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 FPM Center. These dinners are provided for the families in shelter four days a week.

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 FPM Center.

Moving Day Support: When a family moves out of shelter, we rely on volunteers to provide the necessary support. We need individuals with large vehicles, as well as strong volunteers who can lend a hand in lifting and moving heavy items — from mattresses and box springs to boxes of household supplies.

Outreach Events: When Family Promise is invited to community events, it is our opportunity to shine and let everyone know about the incredible work we're doing. We need enthusiastic volunteers to help recruit new supporters and ensure that families in need of our services are aware of the help we can provide.

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.
