18,000 children and their family members are provided care and services annually

Because of the help of over 650 auxiliary members, 18,000 children and their family members are provided care and services. The backbone of Child & Family Agency hinges on our army of auxiliary volunteers, which are organized into six auxiliaries along the shoreline. These helpers provide necessary aid and services that help our mission to run smoothly. These tasks include anything from spending time with children in need to organizing services to theater help.

Auxiliaries welcome new members throughout the year. If you would like to find out more information about our auxiliaries, please contact the following Auxiliary Chairpersons.
