Volunteer and Internship Programs

Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of the individuals and families we serve? Fill out the application form below or email our Volunteer/Outreach Coordinator, Michele Nadeau, at [email protected] for more information. 

Volunteers work in various capacities throughout the agency; childcare, grocery shopping, client mentoring, academic tutoring, financial and employment coaching, tax preparation, shelter beautification, and special projects, including volunteering in our annual “holiday store” (decorating, stocking, wrapping gifts, and/or helping clients “shop” for their loved ones). While some volunteer positions do require specific training and qualifications, most do not require more than a personal commitment to helping others and working with clients with diverse needs and backgrounds. The required time commitment varies by volunteer opportunity.  

Please Note: our volunteer program is currently on hold due to COVID-19 but we hope to resume in the near future. Feel free to submit an application, or contact Michele Nadeau, [email protected] with any inquiries.

1736 Family Crisis Center has a robust internship program. Interns are typically assigned to one of our confidentially-located shelters and primarily work with our children, in addition to gaining experience in regards to case management, staff duties and shelter administration. If you are a student seeking an internship, please complete the webform below and indicate your school and hours required.
