The History Behind Volunteer Houston
Supporting the Texas Gulf Coast Region since 1974.

In 1974, a group of Houstonians who were very involved in the philanthropic community realized that the growing number of nonprofit organizations needed a better way to engage citizens as volunteers in providing service to the community. After a national search for a solution, they organized a local Volunteer Center to serve as a clearinghouse for volunteers.

For 41 years, Volunteer Houston has been the city's sole referral service connecting volunteers to a broad spectrum of diverse nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit organizations all around Houston and its vicinity rely on Volunteer Houston to acquire over 50,000 volunteers per year.

Support over 1,200 agencies by supporting Volunteer Houston
