On behalf of the more than 20,000 nonprofits and the countless number of volunteers in the Greater Houston Community, we would like to welcome you to Volunteer Houston. Whether you are passionate about technology or animals, senior citizens or the environment, a startup or an established nonprofit, have one employee or 100 employees, you have a partner in Volunteer Houston!

Since its inception in 1974, Volunteer Houston has been at the intersection of bringing together volunteers and organizations to build a Greater Houston. In October 2017, Volunteer Houston became a program of Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston and a proud affiliate of the Points of Light Hands On Network.

We encourage you to be a part of the volunteer spirit that transforms communities through service and civic engagement. The process is simple. Organizations sign up and list their volunteer needs. Volunteers sign up and look for organizations that have volunteer opportunities of interest to them. With over 1,200 organizations registered on Volunteer Houston, individuals, families, groups and corporations and their employees can easily find worthwhile volunteer opportunities that make an impact in our community. With over 100,000 people registered on Volunteer Houston, organizations have access to passionate, committed and caring volunteers to help them with their volunteer needs.
