One of the greatest gifts you can give back to your community is your time. Your skills and talents are needed in Denton County. There are many opportunities to change your community for the better as a volunteer, and we invite you to be part of that change.
Volunteer Opportunities With Us
Homelessness Census Point-In-Time Count
Volunteers are needed every January for the Point-In-Time Count, our community's annual census of Denton's County's homeless community. Take a few hours to help survey our unhoused neighbors so we can assess the needs of our community.
Free Tax Prep Volunteers (VITA)
You can help lift a child out of poverty by helping their parent/guardian taxpayer e-file their federal income taxes for free through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). Volunteers like you can be a key part of an effective economic mobility tool that can provide on average a $5,000 boost for working families who often live paycheck to paycheck. No experience necessary. Training provided.
