The Family Justice Center offers many different volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups interested in getting involved.
What do Family Justice Center volunteers say about their service?
“It was rewarding to do intakes and know that I was partly responsible for clients getting help.
“It made me more aware of the prevalence of domestic violence and the effects it has on children – how they are often the forgotten victims.”
“It makes me feel good to know the little things I do help change a person’s life.”
“I will never forget my time at the Family Justice Center. It has changed my opinion of domestic violence.”

By donating “everyday” items to the Family Justice Center, volunteers make a difference in a client’s life. Below is a story that appeared in our May newsletter, which describes how donations affected one family’s life.
Orchard Park United Methodist Church (OPUMC) recently provided a “new life” for a Family Justice Center client. With the church’s donations, our agency was able to give a mother moving into a new apartment with her children items that she could not afford. OPUMC generously donated articles such as pillows, tissues, diapers, clothing, toiletries and baby necessities.
For over 50 years OPUMC has been a supporter of the WNY community. Led by Rev. Dr. Bong Hee Sung, the congregation has contributed to a variety of organizations in the Buffalo area.
OPUMC has brought what it had to offer the FJC – hope for those without. We will never forget how the church helped that one family in need.
