Volunteers are an established and integral part of many programs at Family Services, Inc. (FSI). Inviting people from the community into our organization ensures that we have the community's support and input in our activities and programs. FSI is committed to working with volunteers to accomplish its goals and objectives. Volunteer involvement in appropriate tasks is welcome and encouraged at all levels of the organization. FSI is committed to equal opportunities and believes that volunteering should be open to all regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, ability, religion, and political beliefs.

Volunteer Orientations Held Monthly

We ask all new volunteers to attend a FSI Volunteer Orientation. These one-hour sessions are held twice each month. During the orientation, you will learn about what we do and how our 36 different programs work to provide social and mental health services to stabilize people’s lives. You’ll also learn what is expected of you as a volunteer, about policies and procedures in place to protect you and our clients, and about current volunteer opportunities.

All FSI Volunteer Orientations are held in the Large Conference Room at 620 E. Diamond Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877. Please RSVP to Mary Murphy, Volunteer and Marketing Specialist, by phone at (301) 840-3183 or email at mary.murphy@fs-inc.org.  At that time, she will provide you with a map of the campus so you can easily locate the building. Here is the upcoming Volunteer Orientation schedule:
