Thank you for your interest in volunteering with The Purple Door! We appreciate your desire to end violence and help make South Texas a healthy, thriving community. Our volunteers play an integral role in the success of our agency. Everyone is gifted with talents and skills. Whether it’s the ability to organize our donation room, prepare a delicious meal for our clients, or bring characters to life as you read stories to the children in our shelter, we will make sure to match your strengths with our agency needs.
Depending on the type of work, some volunteers may need to attend training required by some of our funding sources. Please contact our Resource Assistant at 361-884-2900 for more details and information on the training schedule.
Below is a list of basic volunteer opportunities available with our agency. But we welcome your ideas – feel free to call our Resource Assistant or if you’re interested in providing another service or project!
This will require HHSC and OAG training.
Sexual Assault Services
This will require an agency overview and simple orientation prior to the project. However, if you plan to volunteer in any of these areas regularly, you must complete HHSC Training.
Prevention and Education
This will require an agency overview and simple orientation prior to the project. Groups or individuals can come in and provide any of these activities for residential clients.
