Become a Volunteer
Mark Your Calendar:

  Since TSFS has only two paid staff members, part-time, the many people who keep the doors open are volunteers whom God has called to this ministry. They answer the phone; wash, sort and display clothing; mow the lawn; repair and maintain the facilities; offer rides; organize and work at fundraisers; and are behind the scenes doing a number of different tasks as needed.

  In order to become a volunteer we require a person to participate in one of our volunteer training days, fill out an application, and prayerfully consider the decision to commit to volunteering at Tri-State Family Services.

Volunteer Training
Volunteer Training is offered periodically when requested by volunteers.  The training session will be Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 8:00 a.m.--2:00 p.m. at Tri-State Family Services Center at 603 Walnut Street Carthage, IL. Please pray about whether God is leading you to volunteer in some capacity at either TSFS and/or Chrysalis, then call TSFS at 217-357-3343 to make a reservation if you are interested or call if you just want more information.
