Experience the joy of helping others!
A grassroots community organizing effort founded La Familia in 1975 as a means to provide linguistically and culturally responsive mental health services for Latinos in the Hayward community. Since our inception, caring community members and volunteers have been the moving force behind La Familia and remain an essential part of our organization.
We aim to match the personal interests and experience of our volunteers with the needs of the individuals we serve. As a result, we offer a variety of opportunities to get involved, including:
- Working directly with youth and adult participants
- Sharing out services at community outreach opportunities
- Supporting Office and administrative work
- Providing research and data review
- Advocating in our community
Volunteer hours can count towards internships and other community service requirements.
