Individual Volunteers

Over the Edge


On February 26th, 2022 we will be hosting our Over The Edge event at the DoubleTree Galleria. This is a fun and unique event and a great way to support The Women’s Home. Participants will rappel down the 26-story building to raise funds for our organization. We need about 15 volunteers who are willing to be trained to help with the rappelling.

We will have volunteer training at the DoubleTree Galleria on Friday, February 25th from 3-6pm and the event will take place on Saturday, February 26th from 7am-5pm. Lunch, t-shirts, and lots of fun will be provided!

Here is a short video about what to expect.

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, Jenna Jackson at 713-328-1964 or jjackson@thewomenshome.org.
