Volunteer Needs

  • East Broward Auxiliary: a group of passionate volunteers determined to make a difference for children in Broward County. From holiday parties to fundraising events to advocating for change at the Capitol, the Auxiliary is a faithful supporter of Children's Home Society of Florida's Intercoastal Division. More than volunteers, the Auxiliary is truly like family, and it welcomes new members. If you'd like to change the lives of children in our community, we invite you to learn more! The East Broward Auxiliary holds its monthly meetings at 6:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month, with exceptions of July and August when there are no meetings.
