Volunteer with DFPS

Volunteers play an important role in helping DFPS accomplish its mission to protect our most vulnerable Texans. Are you interested in providing support services for children and families in foster care like babysitting, foster care, and adoption? Do you want to donate items in your community, or help to prevent child and adult abuse but don't know how?

Local faith-based and community engagement coordinators can help you, your organization, or your faith community find a volunteer opportunity in your area or make a non-monetary donation. Every day, our coordinators work in partnership with Texans to help meet the needs of the most vulnerable children, adults, and families in Texas.

To get started and get answers to your questions, reach out to the coordinator in your region.
