Nanny/Manny Brigade & Cobb County DFCS

Who We Are

Join the Nanny/Manny Brigade  - Attend our next orientation, 05/05/2017 9:30-11:30 am.  Click link to RSVP.

Most of the time when children are brought into State custody, they need to spend time at the DFCS office until a foster parent picks them up.  Our volunteers supervise and befriend children for a morning or afternoon on that critical day.

  • Male or female, 18 or older
  • Watch children in our office, experience a plus but not necessary.
  • Volunteer for as many hours as you like. Choose the day and times that you are available.
  • Background check and drug screen required (Paid for by DFCS)
  • Share your love with foster children
Our volunteers would coordinate with the DFCS caseworkers and watch children between the ages of infant to 17 years old.  The office is equipped with playrooms and a playground, televisions, books and art supplies.

Story telling, Exercise and outside activities, Arts and Crafts, Board Games, Cooking projects, Gardening, Fun, Smiles

What We Do

The Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) is the part of DHS that investigates child abuse; finds foster homes for abused and neglected children; helps low income, out-of-work parents get back on their feet; assists with childcare costs for low income parents who are working or in job training; and provides numerous support services and innovative programs to help families in need.
