Brazoria County volunteering opportunities
Volunteer Houston is seeking volunteers for various opportunities that have recently opened in Brazoria County.
People who know how or are interested in preparing tax forms are being asked to help low and middle-income people needing help completing their federal tax returns. Participating in a program approved by the Internal Revenue Service, volunteers will receive training that will equip you to staff one of the tax assistance stations opening up at libraries, shopping centers, and community centers throughout greater Houston during tax season. This assignment calls for computer-literate volunteers with good interpersonal skills.
Those with experience as caregivers are wanted to lead classes for an Alvin mental health agency for family members with acute psychological problems. These classes will enable other families to come to terms with diagnostic, legal and treatment issues that often arise when a household member has mental illness, and will equip them to develop their own coping strategies. Some classes are held on weekday evenings, others on Saturdays. In-depth training will be provided.
Volunteer receptionists are needed for greeting and seating visitors for a faith-based social service agency helping needy families in Brazoria County. Additional responsibilities can involve answering the phone and assisting with miscellaneous clerical needs that arise. Weekly shifts can be arranged for Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the agency's Pearland headquarters.
Also, recreation volunteers at a residential health care facility in Alvin for senior citizens are needed. Volunteers will lead several residents in-group activities such as board games, card games, or mild indoor sports, or pair off with one resident at a time for a friendly game of dominoes or checkers. Volunteers can come by on weekdays or weekends.
For more information on these opportunities, please call Volunteer Houston at 281-282-6035.
