When Friendly Center began back in 1924, a group of volunteers had the desire to help their neighbors in need and acted; establishing a place for community outreach called Friendly Center. This spirit of volunteerism so integral to Friendly Center’s founding is still present today though our robust and ever-expanding volunteer program.

In 2018, 700 volunteers participated in supporting Friendly Center programs and events. From tutoring to food distributions, handyman projects, administrative help, mental health counseling, the Board of Directors, holiday programs, Street Fair, and more – with Friendly Center’s many programs come a variety of opportunities for volunteers to get involved and impact the lives of children and families in poverty across Orange County.
