We offer 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 13 counties in the Gulf Coast region of Texas.
Volunteer Houston also offers programming for volunteers, training and networking for nonprofit leaders and Corporate Social Responsibility project management services for companies.
