Lend a helping hand at The Cottage Shop
Do you have an eye for fashion? Do you enjoy sorting, organizing or labeling? We could always use a helping hand from dedicated volunteers in our Cottage Shop! The Cottage Shop is a resale boutique owned and operated by The Women’s Home. The Shop serves as a crucial part of our treatment program as our vocational training site that provides women with employable skills such as merchandising, customer service, etc. As a Cottage Shop volunteer, you will help process the large volume of donated items we receive daily and assist customers on the shop floor. Our volunteers provide support by helping us sort, organize and label the clothing donations we receive.
To learn more about becoming a Shop volunteer, please contact our Volunteer and Collaborations Coordinator, Tammie Mailloux at 713-328-1964 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stewardship Committee Volunteer
Each month our stewardship volunteers meet to write notes of appreciation to donors and community supporters of The Women’s Home. We provide all the supplies, as well as a template for what to write in the cards. This is a flexible once-monthly volunteer opportunity.
Holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, and Mother’s Day can be difficult for our clients and residents, so we try to create as many fun, positive experiences as we can at these times. This is a great opportunity for groups to host a holiday social, game night, or other engaging activity.
Hold a supply drive for clothing, food or school supplies
