Administration and Development Assist our main office with daily administrative tasks.

After School Tutor Tutor children in our after-school program, which takes place during weekdays from 3:00-6:00PM (on Wednesdays until 7). Tutors have the ability to sign up for one or more hours per week. Our tutors work with children of all ages in a supportive after-school program. This includes engaging children with academics, helping with homework, providing additional educational help, supporting and encouraging the children, and helping to provide a positive atmosphere.

Expected Ongoing Commitment: Min. 1 hour a week for a semester
Childcare Oversee children while their parents attend advocacy meetings, parenting and therapy groups, or individual counseling. Our childcare providers are responsible for engaging the children in fun and supportive ways. This allows parents to take advantage of the regular support we offer for them. Without these volunteers, the parents would not be able to fully benefit from our events, if attend at all.

Expected Ongoing Commitment: None
Children's Van Driver Assistant Attend to the children as we drive them to and from our programs. This volunteer is needed to help supervise the children during transportation, as well as assisting our van driver. This includes keeping the children engaged during transit, maintaining a safe atmosphere, managing potential conflict between children, and informing parents prior to arrival at their residence.

Expected Ongoing Commitment: Min. 3 hours a week for a Semester
Drives Finding affordable housing is a huge step for homeless families. Once housing is found, though, families have to fill the house with all the items needed for day to day living. For a family living on the edge of homelessness, the cost of these household items can be a huge obstacle. You can help by hosting a drive for needed items!

Expected Ongoing Commitment: None
Events Housing Families hosts and participates in many fundraising and outreach events in the community every year. Volunteers are a big part of the success of these events. From cheering on runners at the Boston Marathon to working a booth at the Melrose Victorian Fair, we have many opportunities for you to get involved. This is a great opportunity for someone who is enthusiastic but can't make a long term commitment.

Expected Ongoing Commitment: None
Maintenance Are you a natural organizer? Do you know how to paint? Do you like working outside? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you could help us keep our various properties nice and clean for our families!
