About

Are you attentive, empathetic, and engaged? Are you looking to volunteer with children? If so, we have a great opportunity for you!

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is looking for volunteers to sit with children while they are in the hospital. Children and youth who are in foster care and are hospitalized, must be under adult supervision at all times. Our children in the hospital need a caring adult like you to keep them company, comfort them, read to them, or help them eat.

This is a great opportunity for retired medical professionals, first responders, teachers, or anyone who loves nurturing children.

All volunteers are required to complete a background check, attend orientation, and complete online trainings.

For more information, please reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator in your area.
