Interested in getting more involved behind the scenes of this mission to support foster care? Looking for an easy way to utilize your skills, passion and resources to support families and children in Houston? Excited to expand your own network and join a community of like-minded, change-making Angels?
From The Woodlands to Galveston, Baytown to Katy, Rosenberg to Cypress and everywhere in between - we NEED more volunteers to help us spread the word across such a large, populated city. But we also know that not everyone has the ability to commit a lot of extra time to volunteering - especially during this challenging season. So we have decided to meet in the middle and build a committee of ambassadors - Angel Ambassadors - who can play a role in the growth of Houston Angels, without all the big commitments and strings attached. After all, everyone can do something!
Our Angel Ambassadors are loyal advocates of the Houston Angels mission, and help to communicate needs as well as expand our overall network. Angel Ambassadors bring up Houston Angels in conversations at work, at home and out in the community. They connect us with local churches, schools, clubs, businesses, friends and other groups. They contribute towards a variety of tasks, including recruiting new volunteers, creating partnerships, finding resources, fundraising, planning events, sharing social media posts, and more. They care deeply about supporting the local foster care community, believe in the power of community, and want to see Greater Houston thrive.

Volunteering your time to even the smallest of tasks can be extremely helpful and rewarding to the organization you are contributing to, as well as the people it serves. And the perks of volunteering go both ways - it can impact YOU just as much as the cause! Volunteering is said to build empathy and self-esteem, encourage connection with others, and increase levels of happiness. It can be profoundly fulfilling and positively impact your physical and psychological well-being. Researchers have found that helping others helps accrue genuine supportive relationships and social integration, self-worth, a sense of mattering, and life meaning. So what are you waiting for?
