Volunteer Opportunities

Founded by caring volunteers, CFLS continues to thrive and grow - thanks to a vibrant and compassionate donor and volunteer community. We value the time, talents and diligence that our donors and volunteers contribute in helping the homeless, low-income community and women returning home from prison attain the resources, tools and skills they need to be self-sustainable.
