Who We Are

Overview

Volunteers of America Texas
A Ministry of Service to Humanity

Volunteers of America Texas is a human service organization dedicated to helping the vulnerable to reach their full potential. Through our S.H.A.R.E.D. mission, we provide:

  • Substance abuse treatment, prevention and recovery programs
  • Housing Assistance to seniors, low-income families and adults with disabilities
  • Re-Entry programs for those transitioning from prison
  • Disabilities support for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Addition to the programs mentioned above, we offer other supportive services for veterans and workforce development programming.

With locations in more than 30 urban and rural communities, we've been making a difference for those who need the most help in Texas for close to 100 years.

Volunteers: What's in a name?

Based on our name, you might assume our organization is led by or dedicated to managing volunteers. Instead, we are a volunteer organization in the most traditional sense of the word that our founders knew in the 1800s. “To volunteer" in those days meant any individual willing to step forward to serve, whether a paid employee or a volunteer giving time in today's sense.

Today, Volunteers of America Texas has more than 300 employees leading and serving in social service programs across the state, supported by the generous donations of time and money from caring, concerned individuals in the communities we serve.

Our Mission
