Ways to help

Weekly Front Office / Reception Support

Help support an agency supporting parents, and finding new foster and forever homes for children in foster care. Anyone with office experience who has a couple of hours a week to help us cover the light front desk duties and answer reception phones so that our office manager can attend to a myriad of other duties would be hugely appreciated. Friendly and comfortable meeting new people a must.

Passion for cooking

We run two group homes for teens in foster care; one in Malden and one in Dorchester. These homes house 8 youth age 16-21 who are in desperate need of love, support and guidance. Many lack the basic knowledge of how to prepare and cook healthy meals. We would love anyone with a passion for cooking and an interest in helping teens thrive to set up a schedule of visiting the program house to guide the youth in making a meal. Of course, we would also welcome the delivery of home cooked meals if teaching was not your your thing.

How you helpCambridge Family & Children’s Service is a small agency with a broad constituency and we rely on a cadre of volunteers to help us fulfill our mission. We could always use consistent weekly administrative and front office/reception support, support with onsite child care while parents attend support groups and trainings, home cooked meals (or help teaching the teens to cook) in our group homes for foster youth in Malden and Dorchester, help planning and organizing our annual May gala fundraiser, anyone available to do monthly "spring cleanings" at the group homes to help the group homes stay bright and cheery.
