Volunteer Opportunities

with LifeHouse of Houston

LifeHouse desires to mobilize the local church in supporting life through practical volunteer opportunities. The church can tangibly partner alongside us to help disciple and love on women as they make a choice for life and prepare for motherhood.

Whether you are an individual, couple, or group, there are many ways you can get involved with LifeHouse of Houston. From leading a Bible study to sharing a meal with our residents, your time and talents can make a lasting impact in the lives of the women we serve.

No act is too small, and every volunteer plays an important role in our ministry. If you would like more information about volunteering with LifeHouse of Houston, please fill out the form below.
