Be A Volunteer

Volunteering at The Center is more than an opportunity for service; it’s an invitation to join a community where you find inspiration in unexpected places. Whether you’re looking for a one-time experience or an ongoing commitment, there is a place for you at The Center.

The Center needs volunteers every day of the week in multiple areas, and we take special care to match your unique skill set to where it is needed most. We also welcome schools, churches, and businesses looking to make a difference to those we serve. When you apply to volunteer at The Center, you are applying for a truly personalized volunteer experience that you will not find anywhere else.

If you would like to be a volunteer at The Center, please fill out and submit our online Volunteer Application Form. Please submit printed applications by mail or in person to The Center Foundation, 3550 West Dallas in Houston. Be sure to download and read our orientation form before volunteering at The Center.
