Why I Serve
“The mission spoke to me on a very real level. I have enjoyed doing my part in helping spread the word about Kids in the Middle and fundraising so that kids & parents who may not have been able to afford our services otherwise can. I really feel like I am helping children and families in our area. I know what both sides are going through–and even just helping in some small way makes me feel good. KITM is a fantastic organization, and I am proud to serve on its Board.”

Join Our Board
Interested in joining our Board of Directors? If you have experience with boards and fundraising, have a good network of friends and business associates to connect to the organization, and you feel a strong commitment to our mission, this might be the volunteer position for you.
Advisory Council members serve in an advisory capacity to the Agency. In this capacity, the Council does not vote on Board matters and does not have governance authority. Council members have a unique opportunity to be involved without the full-time commitment of joining a Board of Directors. The Council advises the Board and/or staff on issues facing the Agency and keeps the Agency connected with the community at large.
Contact Information: For more information regarding the Kids In The Middle Advisory Council, please contact the Chief Development Officer, Sarah Barone at Sbarone@kitm.org.
