Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
AssistHers is a volunteer organization formed in 1966. Our mission is to provide non-medical, in-home support and care to lesbians with illnesses such as cancer, fibromyalgia, HIV/AIDS and multiple sclerosis. This is to enable them to stay as independent as possible, as long as possible, when dealing with a debilitating illness. We seek to create a more positive, organized response to lesbian health needs in the Greater Houston Area.
Our volunteers are women and men, gay and straight, who work together to provide transportation and non-medical care to help clients remain in their own homes. Each client has a care team of between four to six volunteers who are trained to provide non-medical care. Individual team members commit to one or two visits with their client each month. Volunteers typically spend four to eight hours each month, which includes a visit with the client, a monthly AssistHers meeting, and participating in other AssistHers activities. There are many ways to serve as an AssistHers volunteer, such as being a member of a Care Team or by joining one of our many committees such as public relations, outreach, client and volunteer services, education, transportation, quick response team, tools team, and fundraising. Become a volunteer......you are appreciated!
