Tahirih Justice Center is a national, non-profit organization that protects courageous immigrant women and girls who refuse to be victims of violence by elevating their voices in communities, courts, and Congress.
Since 1997, Tahirih has assisted nearly 17,000 women and children seeking protection from gender-based human rights abuses such as rape, female genital mutilation, domestic violence, human trafficking, "honor" crimes, and forced marriage. Our award-winning, holistic model for protection combines free legal services and social services case management with bridge-building public policy advocacy, education, and outreach.
We are currently in need of a long-term volunteer to provide critical client and administrative support. The Client Support Volunteer will function as the initial point of contact for clients at the Houston office. Volunteers will answer the phones, screening for eligibility, noting client messages, and greeting clients. The successful volunteer will be a detail-oriented self-starter. A mandatory phone interview, background check, and 5 hour training are required prior to volunteering with our organization.
Tahirih Houston is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
