Volunteer

At Center of Hope, volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization. They embody the spirit of service and compassion, dedicating their time and energy to making a difference in the lives of others. Whether they can spare just one hour or commit to helping every day, each volunteer plays a vital role in our mission to bring hope and support to those in need.

If you are interested volunteering, we invite you to our upcoming volunteer orientations. Please RSVP to Ana’leah Harmon at volunteer@centerofhopetx.com if you plan to attend.

Our Pantry Team: Serves our participants directly by helping them select groceries according to family size and availability. Pantry volunteers also visit with participants as well as encourage them along their journey. This position also involves stocking and organizing the pantry.

Drivers: Volunteer drivers are needed to pick up donations of food and grocery items from stores and individuals.

The Hope Chest Volunteers: Sort, arrange, price and unload donations, plus much more!

Office Volunteers: Greet participants and identify needs. Answer phones, fill out vouchers, pledges and other administrative duties.

Instructors: Teach classes and/or tutor students one-on-one. Please see a listing of all our classes to see where your special skills and talents fit.

Basic Literacy Tutor: Volunteers that assist adult literacy students in an effort to improve reading, comprehension, writing and math skills. Many of these students are adults that cannot read.

High School Equivalency Tutor: Volunteers that work with students in reading, language arts, math, science and social studies to help students work toward completion of their HSE credentials. Tutors generally work in one subject area with the student until the student passes that part of the HSE test.

Basic English Teachers: Opportunities are available for instructors to teach basic conversational English for non-English speakers.

Camp Hope Volunteers have the opportunity to work with children as they cook, read and play at Camp. There are multiple camps throughout neighborhoods in Parker County where individuals, churches or businesses can volunteer. Visit our Camp Hope page for more information. What a great way to spend a summer!

Additional Training Required

Participant Advisors: Meet with participants one on one to start the process of diminishing fear and instilling hope by building a relationship of trust. Advisors also help the participant identify needs and suggest resources that will help in their particular situation. This position warrants a spiritually mature individual and training is required.

Life Coaches: Volunteers that are an essential component of Center of Hope’s programs as they strive to help participants to break the cycle of poverty. The interactions between the Center participants and Life Coaches are designed to build trust and long-term relationships, both of which are essential for the participant to learn that they can change to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle. Life Coaches typically meet with participants once a month by appointment, to provide ongoing support and encouragement as the participant moves forward into a more stable, more productive and hopefully a more Christ-centered lifestyle.

Do You Have Any Open Days/Times That You Can Always Use Volunteers?

Center of Hope is open Monday – Thursday from 10AM – 2PM. During these hours of operation, there are many different opportunities to serve. Because the Center is primarily made up of volunteers, they are scheduled ahead of time so we know we are covered in specific areas. We typically do not have open days/times where we can use volunteers that haven’t been previously scheduled. If you do want to volunteer and haven’t been scheduled, it is always best to call ahead and see if we have any projects/areas that need to be covered. The person to contact would be Ana’leah Harmon at 817-594-0266 ext. 327.
