Community Volunteers

How does the community contribute to our work?

We benefit from others' voices and knowledge about the county. We recruit potential volunteers from our various networks.

We offer community members who live or work in Montgomery County the opportunity to volunteer with the foundation for a year. Volunteers participate in meetings and strategic discussions with our staff, board and committees.

What made you want to serve as a community volunteer?
"As a resident of the 'western' section of Montgomery County, I want to learn more about the entire county and be a part of an organization that is providing leadership and making a difference in securing a social safety net for all of the residents of our county and serves as a national model."

What's best about living/working in Montgomery County?
"I've really enjoyed getting to know my neighbors. There is a nice sense of community in my neighborhood and extended network of friends through my kids' schools, sports clubs and other groups that we participate in. I've enjoyed getting to know everyone and hearing about their life experiences and supporting one another through parenthood and other life joys and challenges.

"After spending the majority of my formative years in the Midwest, I was anxious to return to my earliest roots in Pennsylvania after graduating college. I was fortunate to land in Montgomery County which quickly became home, providing the environment I wanted as I started the adult phase of my life. Shortly after I married my husband, I coaxed him into Montgomery County from Northeast Philly, and we never looked back. It has been the perfect place to raise our family."
