Volunteer Coordinators

Volunteers play an important role in helping DFPS accomplish its mission to protect the unprotected. Contact a coordinator in your area about:

  • Finding a volunteer position suited to your needs.
  • Making non-monetary donations.
  • Other special projects.

Coordinators are listed by region and program:

  • CPS (Child Protective Services)
  • APS (Adult Protective Services)

Additional volunteer opportunities are available at the agency's state headquarters in Austin, TX. For those positions, contact the State Office staff.
