Greyhound Adoption League of Texas
Those passionate about animal rights will love helping out the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. The dog-racing industry has left many greyhounds across the state homeless and injured. GALT’s mission is to raise awareness and bring an end to inhumane racing. They also work to rescue displaced greyhounds, foster them until they’re healthy, and place them into fitting forever homes.
By offering educational resources on owning greyhounds and being good companions to these pooches, they’ve opened the hearts of many families — over 3,400 hounds have found homes through them since 2001. If you’d like to support their mission, you can easily donate from home. You can also register as a foster parent or volunteer for administrative work, all online.
The Family Place
At The Family Place, the team provides resources to parents and children leaving dangerous situations in northern Texas. They run 24/7 shelters to provide safe spaces for those in need, but that’s not all. They also have medical and legal teams available to each family. Their goal is to provide each family in need with the tools to successfully leave their situations and begin a new, healthy life. Volunteers are essential to their mission. You can sign up to assist with clerical and administrative work to ensure their services run smoothly. There are distanced, in-person positions, as well as virtual opportunities. Donations are also needed. Their adopt-a-family program lets volunteers sponsor specific families and donate needed goods.
Achieve is helping to place adults with disabilities in fulfilling jobs. Servicing the greater Dallas area, this organization is open to aid anyone with severe intellectual, physical, or mental health disabilities. By offering vocational training and job matching, Achieve helps all of its members gain the skills needed to successfully work within their community. Finding volunteers is critical to their mission. They always accept donations. Additionally, you can sign up to lead virtual or in-person classes and recreations for members of the organization. They also accept administrative help.
