Wichita Family Crisis Center has a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit your time and talents.
Indirect volunteers assist with projects behind the scenes that support clients. Indirect volunteer tasks can include sorting donations, cleaning in our shelter, administrative duties, yardwork, and other tasks that indirectly support clients and staff. Indirect volunteering requires a volunteer application and 1-hour of orientation with our Volunteer Coordinator.
Direct volunteering is providing a direct service to clients. Direct volunteering can include answering the crisis hotline, assisting clients in shelter, intake paperwork, assisting staff during support group or educational classes, and medical advocacy. Direct volunteering requires a volunteer application, KBI Records Check form, DCF Child Abuse Registry Check form, and a 40-hour volunteer advocate training. The 40-hour Volunteer Advocate training is hosted by WFCC once a quarter.
We also welcome volunteer groups based on needs and availability. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to schedule a volunteer group.
