Individual Engagement Opportunities
Family Promise happily welcomes individual volunteers into our shelter program. Opportunities vary from helping with homework and preparing meals to facilities maintenance and office support.
Monday-Friday: ‘After-School Program’ (4-4:45pm). Help with homework, play games, complete STE(A)M challenges and generally keep the kids busy while their parents get the families ready to go to their evening accommodations! (August – May)
Monday-Friday: Facilities Maintenance (Any time between 9am-2pm). Do you have handyman and/or yard skills? If so, we’re looking for volunteers to help on an as-needed basis. We might ask you to help with painting projects, trimming plants, washing down the play area or even washing windows!
Monday-Friday: Office Support (Any time between 9:30am-4pm). Are you interested in helping with general office tasks or assembling marketing materials? Perhaps you like data entry or meeting people who are dropping off donations? If so, we’re looking for volunteers to help on both a steady, long-term basis as well as with short-term projects.
Blessing Store: Schedule varies. Join our team of volunteers who sort and display a variety of goods in our Blessing Store in Tempe. Help families in our graduate program choose clothing and household items for their new homes. (Fall, Winter and Spring)
Special Events: Events vary, so please contact us for more information.
Hosting Site Helper: Support our Inter-Faith partners by helping out during one of their hosting weeks. Some ways to help include setting-up beds/rooms, preparing a dinner meal, planning activities for the families and serving as an overnight host. Dates vary.
