​​​​​​​​​Your Passion, Our Support 

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community in a meaningful way?  At Family Advocates, all of our programs rely on volunteers to help us keep kids safe and strengthen families.  

If you're interested in volunteering with Family Advocates, the first step is to attend a Volunteer Orientation.  These take place every first Tuesday of the month from 9:30 - 11:00 am or every third Tuesday of the month from 5:30-7:00 pm at our office in Boise. These orientations will help you find the right volunteer opportunity for your schedule. 

Contact our office at 208-345-3344 or email to RSVP for an agencywide orientation. Here's what to expect at the orientation:

  • Information on all of our programs and the goals of Family Advocates.​
  • Volunteer Applications will be filled out after the orientation. 
  • A $65 background check donation will be requested, scholarships are available--money won't prevent you from being a hero!
  • Our many thanks!
Below are more details about our program-specific opportunities but we are also always looking for Family Advocates Ambassadors to help us spread the word in the community about this important work as well as people to help with office work or special events.  If you've got the passion and the time, we have many volunteer options to choose from!
