Get Involved with Horizons

Horizons, A Family Service Alliance, provides a variety of ways for community members to get involved. Horizons depends on its volunteers and donors to help fulfill the agency’s mission to serve the Cedar Rapids community. However you choose to help, we thank you.

There’s Something For Everyone

Each area of the agency has its own unique volunteer needs, from delivering meals to administrative tasks. We also have special event volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Call 319-375-3108 or email volunteer@horizonsfamily.org for more information.
