Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Engagement and Volunteer Opportunities

The Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council is partnering with state agencies in Florida to provide faith-based and community-based organizations volunteer opportunities in every community. Volunteers are a driving force and energy behind faith-based and community-based organizations that can provide vital services to the community and its citizens. In order to maximize the effectiveness the state has increasingly been facilitating collaborations between the government, its agencies, departments and programs and faith-based and community-based organizations.
