Get Involved

The Family Tree is your community center, and its success relies heavily on participation from the community. We screen every volunteer to find out their interests, level of commitment, and skills, then match them with the right need.  Those wishing to volunteer for The Family Tree shall complete a Volunteer Interest Form, which will be kept current and on file.
