Current Volunteer Needs
Interfaith Housing Coalition Needs Furniture Donations
Interfaith Housing Coalition recently moved in 18 new families and has graduated a total of 12 families. With all of this transition, they are in desperate need of furniture in good condition (not stained or broken): couches/sofas, small dining tables and chairs, dressers, and chests of drawers. Interfaith is able to pick up large furniture items from areas bordered by George Bush (HWY 190) on the north, 635 on the east, I-20 on the south, and Loop 12 on the west. Furniture and other items are picked up on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. when you schedule and appointment. To schedule a pick-up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, day-time phone number, the address of your pick-up, and items you have for pick-up.
Epiphany Program Volunteer Needs
Epiphany at PHPC is for youth (16+) and adults with special needs. An important aspect of Epiphany is to offer activities and enrichment programs that help develop social skills and independence. Volunteers are needed to: lead and shepherd during Sunday School; assist and mentor during the Life and Arts program staffed by a Life & Arts coordinator; and serve as chaperones for special activities, such as community dances and field trips. Learn more about Epiphany here.
- Sunday School: Sundays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. as a Teacher or Shepherd once or twice a month.
- Life and Arts: Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. once every 4 to 6 weeks, to establish consistency in interactions with participants.
- Special Events: community dances and field trips scheduled throughout the year (a 2 to 3 hour commitment several times a year).
