Volunteerism is a critical ingredient in ending homelessness in our community. And, there are many opportunities for individual citizens to be a real part of the effort. The Coalition accepts general volunteers for projects, and community volunteers for major events such as the Houston Homeless Count conducted in January each year, and the Homeless In Memoriam held on or about December 21 each year. That said, as an advocate organization, we encourage you to consider volunteering with one of the region’s many homeless service providers.
