Spending some time on the Family Support and Resource Hotline

Help strengthen families and prevent child abuse.
Become a Volunteer Parent Support Counselor!

Family Paths, Inc. mission is to strengthen family relationships by providing mental health & supportive services with respect, integrity, compassion and hope. We are currently recruiting Volunteers for our Parent Support Hotline to help us continue to fulfill our mission.

Last year with the help of hotline volunteers we assisted over 6000 families with counseling support, parenting tips & strategies, information & referrals to needed community resources, & referrals to Family Paths mental health services.

This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity for:
* Students (in the counseling, social work and other human service fields) who want to gain
valuable work experience
* Parents/caregivers who want to support other parents/caregivers
* Retirees who want to share their life experience & skills
* Others who want to make a difference in the lives of parents and families

Bilingual and experience working with parents and families' a plus (but not required)

Our 24-hour Parent Support Hotline provides free and confidential counseling, information and referrals to anyone in need of parenting support

All our Volunteer Parent Support Counselors receive 30+ hours of training.
