Programs and Services in Houston
Health Professionals Opportunity Grant Program
The Volunteers of America Texas Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) has expanded its services to more people in need of financial assistance in the Houston area, thanks to a grant received from the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Volunteers of America Texas is a longtime provider of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We believe that each among us is unique and valuable, and we encourage growth by honoring personal strengths and choices. Our goal is to help those we support live full and happy lives.
Outpatient Treatment Services
Our addiction treatment and recovery programs address not only the addiction itself, but also issues like poverty, homelessness and abuse that arise from chemical dependency. We are committed to helping clients gain sure footing in sobriety so that they can reclaim what was lost and become productive members of their families and society.
With more than 40 housing communities across the state, Volunteers of America Texas is one of the largest providers of affordable housing for low-income households in the state. We specialize in permanent, supportive housing options for at-risk groups – seniors, families facing poverty, individuals with mental and physical disabilities and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities – who otherwise might have to turn to unsafe, blighted housing, or worse, the streets.
