Would you like to give your time to the children and families in Iowa and Nebraska? Volunteers are a critical part of the Heartland Family Service team. We rely on volunteers to diversify and expand the services we offer to our clients, as well as to promote and raise funds for the agency.

Heartland Family Service has many volunteer groups open to anyone interested in giving time and resources to those in need.
Heartland 21•40 supports the mission of Heartland Family Service through service, advocacy and financial support.
Heartland 21•40 was established to provide opportunities for metro-area professionals ages 21 to 40 to network with other young professionals and to develop new skills as they become involved in their community through volunteerism. Through activities, special events and fundraising, Heartland 21•40 members increase awareness and financial support for the programs and services provided by Heartland Family Service, providing a foundation of support that is necessary to achieve the mission of the agency: to strengthen individuals and families in our community through education, counseling and support.
Junior Friends – Beginning in August, Junior Friends consists of mature high school teens looking to deepen their commitment to volunteerism. Junior Friends participate and plan small events throughout the school year, ending the year with their biggest event: the Senior Prom. The teens serve as hosts and dance partners for participants of the Heartland Family Service Senior Center and other seniors in the community.
To join Junior Friends, call (402) 552-7418. Or, print and fill out the Junior Friends Application, and mail it along with $30 by August 30 to:

Student League – The Student League was created to honor families who have been active in helping the social service community and who want to pass that legacy onto their children. Selected student members, all in ninth grade, are introduced to the social service community through the mission and services of our agency. The students gain practical leadership experience and develop a personal commitment to volunteering by participating in this “hands on” curriculum.
