Volunteer opportunities at CFLR:

  • Our prevention services reach into schools across the area with classroom presentations, teacher and parent in-services, and health fairs. Our volunteers are an integral part of delivering information in those settings.
  • Our Compeer program offers individualized mentoring to children as well as adults who are dealing with mental health issues. The need for volunteer mentors is constant as our waiting list is always long. Spending an hour a week over coffee, going for walks, etc. is such a simple task, but means the world to someone who needs companionship.
  • Our recovery aftercare programs in Utica, Rome, and Herkimer are always looking for talented individuals who would like to share their hobbies and pastimes with our groups. If you would like to present a one-hour workshop for our participants, please call us.
  • Join our Board of Directors.  We are looking for forward thinking, engaged, kind individuals looking for a way to really make a difference in the Mohawk Valley to individuals and families struggling with addiction, mental health, and behavioral issues by inspiring hope, providing help, promoting wellness and transforming lives.
