Volunteer Houston offers a web-based tool for nonprofits, schools, government offices and volunteers to autonomously post and respond to volunteer opportunities in the greater Houston area and Gulf Coast region of Texas. We also offer local programming for volunteers, training and networking for nonprofit leaders and Corporate Social Responsibility project management services for companies.

MISSION | Connect individuals, groups and companies with nonprofit agencies to transform the greater Houston community for good through volunteerism.

Volunteer Houston is the Points of Light affiliate in Houston. Points of Light is the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. They mobilize millions of people to take action that is changing the world through affiliates in 250 cities across 37 countries and partnerships with thousands of nonprofits and corporations. Points of Light engages 5 million volunteers in 20 million hours of service each year.

Volunteer Houston was started as its own 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1974. In October 2017 it was absorbed by Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (IM). When that happened our mission did not change. However, Volunteer Houston is now a non-religious program of IM, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that envisions a community working and acting together in response to the needs of a Greater Houston to create a more respectful, connected, and caring society.
