We value a safe and not-threatening environment

You can help clients, other volunteers and staff feel comfortable and safe at Family Service locations.

As a volunteer, you are expected to:

  • Treat clients, staff members, other volunteers with courtesy and respect
  • Avoid behavior which may be perceived as a racial, ethnic, religious, gender, political or other slur
  • Avoid any sort of sexual harassment, including unwanted jokes, gestures or flirting
  • Avoid any language or behavior which implies a threat of violence
  • Leave all weapons and dangerous materials at home
  • Ensure you know what to do when there is a fire drill (ask your site supervisor)
  • Report possible child abuse in accordance with your training in Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse (applies to specific volunteer positions)

We use video surveillance to help ensure your safety, however we recommend you protect and secure your belongings as Family Service is not responsible for personal property. Video cameras are not in restrooms and are available for viewing only by designated Family Service staff members.
