Want to Help?
Volunteer Reception Center (VRC)
Volunteer Houston is contracted with Harris County to establish a Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) where people who want to help can go to be deployed for a wide variety of needs.
Volunteer Houston and Harris County will announce when a VRC is activated via social media, email and County/City alert systems (Ready Harris and Ready Houston).
Disaster recovery volunteer needs are updated in real-time on the VolunteerHou.org website during times of disaster and recovery. In the meantime check out the many volunteer needs posted from over 300 local nonprofit agencies. Or click here to view Disaster Recovery volunteer opportunities.
