Volunteer Opportunities

Our typical volunteer opportunities at The Settlement Home for Children are varied to match your availability and interests. If you are interested in volunteering at The Home, our volunteers can expect to meet the following criteria:

Volunteers, as defined in the Texas Department of Family Protective Services Standards for 24-hour facilities, must complete the following screening process prior to involvement with a child. This screening and application process applies to volunteers serving in a regular, ongoing role at The Home.

*Note: Exceptions to this would include those instances in which the child has developed a relationship with the volunteer in an outside setting such as school or in a prior placement. In this case, the volunteer must complete the process prior to off-campus activities.

Volunteers must be a minimum of 21 years of age.
