Get Involved!

Two questions that I am frequently asked are “How can I learn more?” and “How can I become involved, offer my services?”

The Family Center reaches out to the community in so many ways that it is easy to find a way to learn more or to serve that suits you best.

Learn more about The Family Center by attending our presentations on a variety of topics from birth through college facilitated by local experts, reading our weekly Ask the Experts columns in the Grosse Pointe News, visiting our always-updated website with access to programs offered by The Family Center and others, connecting with members of our Association of Professionals or asking to be placed on our newsletter mailing list.

Those interested in helping or being involved with The Family Center can serve on one of our committees, join our CIRCLE of FRIENDS event committee, donate in-kind services or goods, contribute financially or be a sponsor for an event or program, advertise in our newsletter, become a member of our Association of Professionals, lend your expertise as a professional for a presentation, host a third-party fundraiser to benefit The Family Center or leave a legacy gift to benefit the organization.

As this October marks The Family Center’s 11th Anniversary, remember that The Family Center relies solely on the generous support of its community supporters and the efforts of more than 100 volunteers.

The Family Center remains a viable, respected community resource due to the generous support it receives and the actively engaged, hands-on work of our Board of Directors. We are a creative organization and can find the right spot for you!!
