We really need your help...

With our administrative office located in Columbia and services in Baltimore City and beyond, the vision of Baptist Family & Children's Services is to give kids and families in distress a new start by promoting their safety, stability and well-being. Fulfilling this dream, however, will require the involvement of hundreds of volunteers, especially those ready and willing to serve from the area’s faith community. Whether it’s becoming a temporary host family for a child whose family is currently in crisis or utilizing one’s construction skills to help turn a donated church parsonage into transitional housing, the need for dependable volunteers is critical.

If volunteering with us sounds interesting, please (1) complete the "Contact Information" form below, and (2) return by mail, fax or email a completed "BFCS Volunteer Application" to the attention of Tricia Sakles (tricia@baptistfamily.org).
