Seacoast Family Promise has volunteer opportunities for the holidays

When a family comes to Seacoast Family Promise they understand that through hard work and determination they can make the necessary changes and turn their lives around. The children understand that it is their primary job to focus on school, sports and other activities that make up a typical day for most children. Families go to the Day Center, local schools, jobs, or training programs during the day. In the evening, they return to the host facilities and enjoy a nutritious, hot meal prepared and served by volunteers. Children can play games and do their homework and the families get to converse with our volunteers who may read to the children or help with their school work.
There is no better feeling than helping a family get back to a structured, stable life and eventually returning to a place that they can call home.
There are volunteer opportunities for young and old and for any level of commitment.
