The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is looking for volunteers to sit with children while they’re in the hospital. This organization works with children and youth who are in foster care. The children must be under adult supervision at all times. As such, the group is always on the lookout for a caring adult to keep a child company, comfort them, read to them, and/or help them eat.
A new car’s not for you? How about pre-owned?
The Victoria Public Library does, well, library things, such as encouraging a love of reading and propounding a commitment to literacy. To realize these goals, they provide resources in a never-ending quest to satiate the community’s curiosity and stimulate the imagination, both individual and collective. The library ceaselessly strives to develop programs that encourage the expression of creativity. They also utilize technology to support collaboration.
If these goals sound good to you, feel free to contact them about volunteer opportunities.
The Riding Therapy Center provides a unique form of physical, occupational, cognitive and speech therapy to children and adults with various special needs and disabilities. The whole thing is done with or while riding specially trained therapy horses.
This unique therapy utilizes the rhythmical, three-dimensional movement of a horse to help individuals improve their balance, coordination, fine motor skills, sequential thinking, problem solving, increase their self esteem and more.
Volunteers at the Riding Therapy Center must be 14 years or older. Sidewalkers work directly with clients during lessons while providing safety, stability, and assistance. Horse Handlers must pass horse handling tryouts and have experience working with horses.
Oh, you’d just like to fix up your existing car? We can help with that, too.
