GENEVA—Did you know that approximately 1 out of 5 Americans is struggling with a mental health problem?
TriCity Family Services (TCFS), a private, not-for-profit human service agency serving the community members and organizations of central Kane County, is looking for volunteers. TriCity Family Services is dedicated to strengthening people and building community through promoting family-centered mental health and wellness. The agency provides quality, affordable counseling, youth crisis intervention, prevention and early intervention services that promote sound mental health and effective family functioning.
TriCity Family Services recognizes that volunteers are a valuable resource, and opportunities to volunteer are available. The agency is currently recruiting board members, board committee volunteers, and Friends of TCFS.
Board members establish sources of funding, an adequate pool of volunteers and a superior professional staff to help TCFS meet achieve its mission of service in the community. The agency is particularly in need of board members with skills in the areas of accounting and finance, marketing and public relations, human resources and computer technology.
Become a Board Committee Volunteer and join the Finance, Audit, Resource Development, Personnel, Behavioral Health or Major and Planned Gift Committee.
TCFS is also seeking new Friends of TriCity Family Services, the agency’s volunteer auxiliary. The Friends have a strong commitment to the annual budget through major fundraising events—including an Annual Benefit and Auction and the Lobster Fly-in. In addition, the Friends step forward to fill individual client needs and provide occasional office assistance.
