About

Are you a good listener? Do you enjoy talking to people? Are you ready to make a difference? If so, sign up today to be a Volunteer Hotline Advocate. You can answer texts and chats from the comfort of your own home!


Within the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the Texas Youth & Runaway Hotline provides crisis intervention, advocacy, and information and referrals to at risk youth and concerned adults via phone, chat, and text. The Texas Youth & Runaway Hotline operates 24/7, responding to the needs of Texas youth and families. We depend on volunteers like you to help us answer the call!

This is a great opportunity for students interested in a career in counseling or social work, for retired social service professionals, or for someone looking to make a difference.

All volunteers are required to complete a background check and attend orientation. Eight hours of training is provided.
