Volunteer and Partner Services Program

About the Volunteer and Partner Services Program

The Volunteer and Partner Services (VPS) Program engages volunteers and builds partnerships to support families with children who are at risk of abuse, neglect or placed in foster care or with relatives. The program builds volunteer capacity in the division, implements programs, and directs activities that promote positive relationships within the community. Together, Volunteer and Partner Services Program and Children, Youth and Families staff, support workers by providing the most efficient, safe and stable service to our clients. We appreciate our volunteers very much! For more information about the Volunteer and Partner Services Program, email Krissa Slone or call 703-324-7751.
