Discover Austin through the eyes of a Child!!

We are always accepting volunteers, but only hold volunteer orientations every other month.

Our Mission at The Settlement Home for Children is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. The Settlement Home offers a variety of services and programs to individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect- our programs include a Residential Treatment Center, Group Home Program, Transitional Living Program and Foster & Adoption Program.

Current Needs:

One on one mentorships.

Individual Mentors:

We need volunteers to serve as mentors to our female residents. Volunteers are essential to helping children from hard places that have experienced a breach in trust and care learn how to develop healthy relationships with other individuals, particularly adults. Volunteers are an essential part to the continuum of care that helps children realize that outside of the walls of The Settlement Home are still genuine, safe people in the world that care.

You can provide hope and support in a child's life by becoming a mentor.

Why volunteer with The Settlement Home for Children? Check out some of the perks! Flexible scheduling, quality training and learning opportunities in non-profits, social work, and counseling. Letter of recommendation upon completion.
