Volunteers & Mentors

 

We are a forward thinking, data driven child welfare agency which consistently strives to embody a culture of safety incorporating identity, diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. It is with and through these values we will meaningfully serve and positively impact the families and community partners within Franklin County so that together we may ensure the safety, stability and well-being of all our children and their families.

Building Relationships to Create a Better Tomorrow

Our volunteers and mentors are a part of a caring community who work with our agency youth and assist our staff at our intake, assessment and investigations department. Through the power of one on one relationships, we are committed to nurturing the youth involved with our agency by offering them fun childhood experiences they may have never received.

Do you want to have fun spending time with a child?
Are you at least 18 years old?
Would you enjoy spending time in our Crisis Center, supporting social workers as they do critical work for our families?
Do you have at least four hours a month to give and can you commit to spending at least six months with us?
Do you have reliable transportation and vehicle insurance?
Can you support the mission of Franklin County Children Services?
