Alpha Family Center offers many opportunites to volunteer, depending on your interests. Our mentors meet one-on-one with the clients who come in for our services.  Mentoring simply means to "guide." Many of the families we meet with for parenting classes need help in understanding what lies ahead of them and with referrals to other agencies for additional assistance.

Training is provided for all new volunteers, and each new mentor starts by "shadowing" other mentors to get a feel for what we do, easing the anxiety of the unknown.

Our goal is to be open five days per week - we can do that only with the addition of more mentors.  We want families in crisis or in need to have access to the help they are looking for without too many road blocks.  It is our goal to make their experience here a positive and smooth one!

Please call Brenda at 231-652-1548 for an application or for more information.  Or, you can email the Center at:
