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.
Programs and Services in the Dallas/Forth Worth area
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.
When individuals are released from prison, their options for employment, decent housing, credit and more are severely limited. In the face of these obstacles, committing crimes may seem like a necessity in order to survive.
Substance Abuse Treatment
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.
Substance Abuse Prevention
Volunteers of America Texas works with children of clients in our treatment programs. We also work with at-risk youth through school-based curricula, to educate them about the dangers of substance abuse, improve their communications with parents and empower them to make positive choices when faced with pressure from peers.
Be part of building stronger, healthier communities and give a hand up to those in need. We offer a vast array of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. Below are a few ideas for how you can help.
