Family Promise Metrowest has started using CERVIS which is a new volunteer software program that allows all ORIENTED volunteers to sign up to help at any congregation or activity within Family Promise. We are requesting that all Christ Lutheran Church volunteers start signing up using CERVIS. (Although since our host week is fast approaching, we will also have the usual sign-up sheet in the Fellowship hall.)
All current volunteers have been uploaded into the system. PLEASE GO TO http://CERV.IS/m?0002 AND UPDATE YOUR PROFILE. This software will not only make it easier for community volunteers to get involved, but it provides Family Promise the tool to track the active volunteers and the hours spent volunteering. This information is critical in obtaining grant money for FPM. It also allows staff to reach out to you when help is needed in areas like tutoring, cooking, arts and crafts, education, financial skills, etc. by quickly accessing all persons who have marked those as area of interest or specific skills.
This is how you can get started:
Enter your email and first name. Scroll down and click sign in. If you have been uploaded to the system your profile will appear. If not, create your profile. When prompted create the password that you want to use with the system. I recommend that you BOOKMARK the site so it is easy to return to.
Complete your profile (a valid phone number, email, your age group, and an emergency contact are required fields). Also, be sure to select the groups/locations at which you are interested in participating. Other fields are optional but extremely helpful to Family Promise. Please note: your information is secure and will not be shared with anyone outside of Family Promise.
You will now be able to view/register for most volunteer opportunities including our upcoming Family Promise Host Week that starts Sept. 10th with clean up on Saturday the 9th. Certain Day Center opportunities require additional training. If you would like to volunteer at the Day Center, please contact Judy Mongiardo at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule the additional training.
