About

The Avenue J MINT Arts & Crafts Program Leader will be responsible for running an arts & crafts class for the clients in the MINT program--a program that provides care and support for pregnant women who are incarcerated--at Avenue J, a residential re-entry center for people exiting the Federal Bureau of Prisons. This includes providing the materials and supplies for crafts and for planning activities that are suitable for the women to do with their children.

This is an opportunity to have a positive impact on our clients and engage with them in a fun and relaxed environment. Volunteering in this capacity will help provide the women with activities that will encourage bonding with their children.

Volunteers of America Texas is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that lifts the most vulnerable in society out of the shadows. We step forward to help individuals find strength, healing and their full potential through services, including:

  • Addiction treatment, prevention and recovery programs
  • Affordable housing for seniors, low-income families and adults with disabilities
  • Community re-entry programs from those transitioning from prison
  • Housing and support for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • A continuum of support services to assist our clients and address the needs of the whole person

With locations in more than 30 urban and rural communities, we’ve been making a difference for those who need the most help in Texas for close to 100 years
