About

The Park Meadows Reading Coordinator will be responsible for spending time reading (books, newspaper, etc.) to the residents of Park Meadows Apartments, a housing site for low-income seniors. This is an opportunity to engage with residents in a fun and relaxed environment. Volunteering in this capacity will give the residents an opportunity to socialize and be more mentally active, improving their overall quality of life. This opportunity can be done by kids or teens as long as they are supervised.

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
