Mission Statement

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.

Description

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!
