Fundraising Volunteers

Create an event or celebrate a birthday/anniversary or a special milestone in your life to help us raise critical funds to increase our outreach and advocacy on behalf of the community. Check out our fundraising page for more ideas. Please visit our fundraising page to learn how you can help.

Helpline Volunteers

Helpline Volunteers share their compassion one-on-one, over the telephone, from their own home. Just by listening, finding resources to support the caller and sharing their own story, a Helpline Volunteer empowers the caller and generally can lessen his/her fears.

This volunteer position requires:

One year commitment of 4-6 hours per month (must be available for a pre-set 2 hour block of time every other week.)

  • Helpline calls are forwarded to your home or cell during your two hour shift and your number is not disclosed to the caller.
  • The most suitable Helpline Volunteers are those not facing surgery, are comfortable with the course of treatment they chose and willing to discuss all treatment options. Training is provided.
  • A special need exists for Men and Spanish speaking members for call backs (no schedule time required.)

Outreach Coordinators

Outreach Coordinators are the face of FORCE in local communities. Coordinators offer support and resources to individuals and families via email, phone, and at face-to-face local support meetings. In addition, they participate in educational and awareness opportunities including conferences and events as well as planning and running fundraising activities.

This volunteer position requires a motivated individual who can dedicate 5-8 hours a week for a minimum of 1-2 years. The successful coordinator:

  • Has strong communication skills
  • Is computer literate
  • Possesses leadership skills
  • Demonstrates organizational abilities

We are currently looking for coordinators in the following areas only.

  • CALIFORNIA: Orange Count
  • CALIFORNIA: Sacramento
  • ILLINOIS: Chicago
  • INDIANA: Indianapolis
  • MARYLAND: Baltimore
  • NEW YORK: Long Island
  • OREGON: Portland
  • MISSOURI: St. Louis
  • SOUTH CAROLINA: Columbia
  • TENNESSEE: Memphis
  • TEXAS: San Antonio
  • WISCONSIN: Milwaukee

I was so grateful to FORCE and the strength and support that the organization had given me that I felt inspired to give back to others and signed up to be a helpline volunteer. I continue to feel inspired by the strength and perseverance of so many members.
