Volunteer with Us

Make an Impact in Your Community

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Volunteering is a great way to roll up our sleeves and help our neighbors after a disaster, and is an essential component of effective disaster recovery.

Anyone can generate impact, whether they’re mucking & gutting flood-damaged homes, or calling our most vulnerable neighbors to make sure they’re OK and connecting them with the resources they need. Learn more about the different ways you can get involved.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Houston

Volunteer Houston works in partnership with the Harris County Long Term Recovery Committee (HCLTRC) and the Texas Gulf Coast Regional Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (TXGCVOAD) to coordinate volunteer opportunities between folks looking to help and organizations working with volunteers to deliver needed services to our neighbors.

After a disaster, Volunteer Houston sets up virtual Volunteer Reception Centers (VRC’s) to match volunteers with urgent volunteer needs in the community.

Faith-based Volunteer Efforts

Both Houston Responds and Texas Congregational Disaster Readiness (TXCDR) work with extensive networks of faith-based institutions to provide assistance with the help of volunteers.

Become trained on emergency response and become a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) member. CERT Teams provide valuable and essential assistance to their neighbors in the aftermath of a disaster.
