Volunteers

Giving back to your community can be just as valuable as giving money.

Family Service’s Volunteer Services Department serves the agency, its staff, community partners, valued stakeholders, local universities and high schools, and clients. Individuals, groups, community and corporate partners and families are constantly engaged to participate in fulfilling Family Service’s mission.

Our volunteers range in age, occupation, skill-sets, talents and diverse ethnicities. They are business executives and stay-at-home moms, working individuals, students and retirees. Undergraduate, Graduate and Post-Graduate Internships are available. The department cultivates and engages year round local colleges and universities for internships that can expand our professional services to more clients and offer significant professional experience to fulfill graduation requirements. The Adopt-A-Family Program requires six months of careful planning; and some volunteers will assist the agency in a day-long project such as United Way Days of Caring or St. Mary’s Continuing Heritage.

When you volunteer at Family Service Association, you’re helping families and individuals improve their lives and strengthen their communities. We have flexible evening and weekend hours available, and opportunities for families to volunteer together. As a result of the generosity, time and talents of our volunteers, Family Service Association received the “Volunteer Program of the Year” award, the highest award in San Antonio for volunteerism in nonprofit work. Last year, Family Service had 10,855 volunteers who provided 252,757 volunteer hours in support of the families we serve. We hope you will choose to partner with Family Service Association and make a difference in your community.
