Volunteer at Brighton Center

Brighton Center celebrates victories as families move toward self-sufficiency. Every victory is aided by the compassion of our donors and the commitment of our volunteers. Through our work together we can make a difference in improving the quality of life for those we serve.

Do you know how much your time is worth to Brighton Center? Every hour you volunteer equates to a $24.14 donation – that means when you spend an hour mentoring youth or working in our Choice Food Pantry or reading a book to a child, you save the Center $24.14. That’s over $190 for one day of volunteerism!

Our volunteers mean the world to us. Last year 2,954 volunteers helped to impact lives the lives of individuals across Northern Kentucky.

Brighton Center Safe at Home Volunteer Opportunities

Brighton Center has a mission to create opportunities for individuals and families to reach self-sufficiency through family support services, education, employment, and leadership. We achieve this by providing critical programs and services that help our community grow and thrive.

In response to the current COVID-19 outbreak Brighton Center is committed to providing essential services to the community. The health and safety of our staff, customers, volunteers, and community is of the utmost importance as we navigate the current health crisis.
