Since our inception, Jewish Family Service has been fueled by the incredible passion and dedication of our volunteers. We are always looking for more volunteers to help us to continue our services and programs in the community. Volunteers tell us that they often find that the experience is often just as meaningful and rewarding for them personally as it is for the individuals receiving services, if not more.

By donating your time and becoming a volunteer, you are able to give the unique gift of connecting with your own community members and making a difference. Training and support are offered to all volunteers. Find out more about volunteer opportunities by sending an email to volunteer@jfsorange.org or calling 845.341.1173 x305.

We are so grateful to our active volunteers that help make our programs possible. Our volunteers donate their time in a variety of way, including:

  • Provide a ride for a neighbor no longer able to drive to their medical appointments or to other destinations in the community
  • Go grocery shopping for neighbors for who are homebound
  • Offer a friendly visit to a neighbor in need
  • Provide reassuring telephone calls
  • Help serve people with developmental disabilities through our Roots program
  • Provide clerical assistance in our Middletown office
  • Assist in our KidsConnect program 
  • Serve on the agency’s advisory board
  • Offer time on one of the committees of the Board of Directors
