Volunteer – Get Involved

Holy Family Institute has served children, youth, and families for more than 115 years. In addition to donating financial resources, many of our supporters generously commit their time and talent to help serve our community. Volunteers are vital to the success of our mission of empowering children and families to lead responsible lives.

Administrative Volunteer Opportunities

Our departments and satellite offices need volunteers to assist with administrative tasks, such as electronic filing, answering phones, appointment scheduling, simple assessment completion, intake packet compilation, data entry, and distribution of marketing materials.


Corporate Group Day of Service

Corporate groups may participate together as a part of a company volunteer initiative or team building activity. Day of Service projects typically last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include lunch. Service projects include campus groundskeeping, small improvement and construction projects, painting, gardening, and cleaning. These projects keep our costs low, saving precious funds for the children and families we serve.
