Volunteering

Join the Volunteers of Children's Aid and Family Services

It takes a village…It takes YOU!

It takes a village to raise a child; the time-honored African proverb speaks to the importance of community. The Nigerian proverb emphasizes the values of family, relationships, self-sacrificing concern for others, sharing, and compassion personified by our organization mission.

As one of the largest and oldest regional non-profit human services organizations serving northern New Jersey, Children's Aid and Family Services provides a wide range of programs, services and resources to those in need.

Our volunteers embrace the philosophy that it takes a village to help us improve the lives of vulnerable children, young adults, and families who need our services.

The primary function of Volunteer Services' is to support the programs and services of Children's Aid and Family Services by linking them to the community's most valuable resource, YOU!

Volunteer Service's offers a variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities based upon the needs of our programs, and typically include:

  • Direct Services (working directly with a child, family, or adult in our care)
  • Corporate Projects
  • Community Drives
  • Special Events

After our staff reviews your volunteer application we will do our best to match your skills, interests, and availability to opportunities available.

Join our village of volunteers and help us create an invaluable network of resources, through your time, energy, skills, and talents; and make an impact in the life of a child.
