Our Model

The commitment of a skilled and dedicated core of volunteers is integral to the work of the Karsh Family Social Services Center. Whether it’s feeding clients through our Mobile Food Pantry or helping veterans facing homelessness clear tickets at our Sunday legal clinics, volunteers are at the heart of our efforts.

Karsh volunteers lend their expertise, time, and energy to each of our pillars of service: Health and Wellness, Civic Engagement, Food and Nutrition Security, Financial Stability, Literacy and Education, and Child Well-being  — as well as to the joint Karsh Center/Wilshire Boulevard Temple programs.

We are proud to offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, which comprise a list that continues to grow and change in response to the needs of our clients and the communities we serve.

For some opportunities, you’ll need to submit an application and go through training; for others, you can simply register and show up. Some programs are interested in individuals who can participate every week, while others that you fit in a single day to help out with a special event. Our volunteers contribute in a plethora of ways, from conversing and counseling and teaching to driving and lifting and cooking. There is truly something for everyone.
