Volunteer Opportunity - Family Service Volunteers


Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on January 16, 2014

The Family Service Volunteers greet and assist the children and their families that visit Children’s Safe Harbor. Children come to our facility for a variety of reasons – forensic interviews, medical exams or individual, group or family therapy. Accompanying those children are siblings, friends, cousins, parents, grandparents or caregivers, each with their own individual needs. The responsibilities of the Family Service Volunteers revolve primarily around making these families feel comfortable and welcome in our buildings at all times.
Duties:
Some of the duties involved with the Family Service Volunteers include maintaining the waiting area, keeping the environment safe and clean for small children, helping the children to choose their snacks and juice, and providing coffee, juice or water for care-givers who are waiting while their child meets with a forensic interviewer, therapist, or sexual assault exam. Family Service Volunteers will also assist in watching the children and keeping them entertained while the caregiver: meets with the Multidisciplinary Team after the forensic interview, attends their own counseling session, or while the caregiver meets with the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. Additional duties centered on the children and/or the families may also be asked of Family Service Volunteers. Such duties may include selecting and wrapping birthday gifts for the children, stocking and organizing snacks, refilling the paint bottles in the play therapy rooms, disinfecting play therapy items and waiting area and straightening and organizing the group therapy room.

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Training is provided.
