We welcome Volunteers!

Do you like to help others? We rely on volunteers to supplement our staff and limited resources and help sustain our work in the community. We appreciate the dedication, time, talent and enthusiasm of our volunteers.  Volunteers are essential to the success of Jewish Family Service programs.

If you wish to volunteer: call 513-766-3322 or fill out the Online Volunteer Form.

As a volunteer, you can play an important role in fund-raising, food collection and purchasing, sorting, food distribution and delivery, and visiting isolated members of our community who thrive on personal visits.  

We have an immediate need for volunteers to drive clients to and from their activities at the Barbash Family Vital Support Center. In addition, we need drivers to help deliver food, and to visit our wonderful homebound clients.

If you are already a volunteer: sign in here: Volunteer Information Center 

These volunteer opportunities offer a
chance for you to touch the hearts of
others—whether it be through a friendly visit
or a long-term friendship.
