Volunteer

Volunteers serve many roles at Richmond Family Place.  They can be found in the Thrift Store serving customers and organizing the shop, in the kitchen prepping and cooking for community meals, in the playroom connecting with the families, in the office providing administrative support, and on our Board of Directors helping to govern and guide the work we do.  Our volunteers are diverse not only in their age and cultural background but in the gifts they have to offer.

What Parents Say

“Family Place provided a place to come when life is hard.”

“[Family Place] is the place I live in a real family atmosphere when I was missing my own family. I learned how to raise a child and made relationships with other mothers.”

My frined told me that it was a beautiful program and that I would not feel like I was in a strange country. All the staff welcomed me and there was food. We sat and ate with other families”

“Every time I feel distressed, alienated and miss my family, I go there. They give me love and attention and time.”
