Around Star of Hope we have a lot of on-site volunteer opportunities. Check out Community Volunteer Opportunities Houston and you'll see what I'm talking about. If your searching for volunteer opportunities we also have a few off-site, "virtual" volunteer opportunities you may be interested in.
When I first began thinking about how I could help the homeless my first thoughts centered around serving meals. It was all about being on-site and hands on. That's what I did and it was great!
Over the last couple of weeks, with all of the Star of Hope news on Houston media, we have seen an outpouring of love in our community. Friends donating online or giving $10 by texting "SOH" to 20222. Friends calling and emailing, asking how they can help. Friends on Facebook and Twitter are helping us get the word out. Other friends are organizing drives and collecting items that we urgently need. Others are continuing to pray for Houston's homeless... those who are on the street and those who are in programs at Star of Hope. I am amazed and so thankful!
What can you do off-site and at your convenience to help Houston's homeless? I just mentioned some ways. Off course you can do these things without telling us, but let us know and we can help you with some resources. Click on the links below to learn more.
