Volunteer: Houston's homeless children need you

 

The problem of homelessness seems overwhelming. You want to help, but it's hard to know where to begin. Can your skills, your time, your resources really make a difference?

 

Yes.

 

Homemade Hope knows there's no quick fix, no grand solution to the problem of homelessness. But through our work with homeless children in Houston's shelters, we've learned that many small, consistent actions create real change in real lives.

 

There are many ways to get involved, whether you wish to help behind the scenes or volunteer directly with some amazing kids.

 

Here are just some of the ways you can invest in the lives of Houston's homeless children*: 

  • Tutor weekly or monthly for 30 minutes

  • Volunteer two hours weekly or monthly to assist during after-school cooking

  • Chaperone a field trip

  • Volunteer during holiday celebrations 

  • Create an hour class/workshop for school-aged children around a favorite hobby or skill: photography, art, yoga, design...let's talk about the possibilities!

  • Donate photography or design skills for marketing materials

  • Introduce us to potential sponsors

  • Donate food, materials, supplies, tickets/admission to local venues/events, or gifts for birthdays or holidays. Ask us what the kids need!

  • Share an idea we may not have thought of!

 

Our goal is to connect you to a role that aligns with your strengths and feels life-giving, because however you choose to contribute, you'll be investing in lasting change for vulnerable children. We look forward to working together!

 

*All volunteers working directly with children will be thoroughly screened and required to complete a background check. Our top priority is the safety of our children. Thanks for understanding.
