The Volunteer Houston website functions as a search engine for volunteer needs. Volunteers can search for needs based on location, interest, and skills. When a volunteer clicks “Respond” to your event, both the agency contact and volunteer will receive each other’s information. We highly recommend that the agency’s staff contact the volunteer within 3 to 5 business days and again prior to the day of the project. Volunteer Houston also tracks volunteer feedback to ensure the process runs smoothly.
