We enlist your assistance with:

"People make the world go round", is a powerful and true statement for it simply means that individuals have a critical role in keeping things working as they should in our world. We at SHLF understand that you are a vital part of this organization's ability in making an impact on our society and appreciate the valuable time and skills you provide toward this cause.

 

It is time to lend a hand to the greatest gift of all......LIFE!

Our Volunteer Programs

Volunteers and Mentors are an important part of SHLF's team to fight against homelessness and institutionalization of our seniors and at-risk military. The assistance that you provide help the staff to better meet the needs of our clients, provides individualized attention, increases motivation and improved self-concept, and increases community awareness to the issues.

Home improvements/repairs

We need experienced professionals in all aspects of improvements, and/or repairs and maintenance to a home. We also need volunteers to assist in the process of upkeep of the home, such as painting and/or cleaning prior to occupancy (no background check is required if the home is unoccupied).  

 

 

For the experienced professional looking for a contract, please go to the online booking section and schedule a time for us to speak to you about your services and/or supplies. 

Chores Assistance

Volunteers are needed to assist those in need with activities around the home. Please indicate on the application if you prefer indoor and/or outdoor task and we will match you to those in need of these services. 

Activities

It is important that we continue an activity that keeps our bodies moving. Being a companion to someone who needs your assistance in staying active will give you the motivation and dedication to keep the activity in your life as well...mutual satisfaction! Like to window shop? Ever thought about taking someone with you?

 

Remember that the activity for our seniors may include mind stimulation activities, therefore even our volunteers who have had all the physical movement that they can handle for the week can find a "resting place" while providing kindness.

Donate/help the cause

According to the America' Health Rankings Senior Report in 2016, Texas ranked number 48 of 50 for nursing home quality. On previous reports, using the same criteria for those who were eligible for low-care nursing home services, Texas ranked number 26 of 50 in the United States.

 

These statistics show why many Americans are choosing to "age in place": something that the elderly have said all along.....they want to stay in their home!  

 

Texan's we can do better in proving for our seniors in need. It is not only what they want, but it also has improved emotional, social and health benefits associated with it when all their needs are met in a home environment. Please select at least one of our programs listed below and provide a donation.

Gold Medal Program - Donate a Home

Do you have a home that you just inherited, rental property that is giving you a headache, and/or a vacation home that you do not want to use any longer? Find out how you can donate this property and get a tax deduction while helping others!

 

Our number one priority is to provide homes for seniors and veterans at-risk to live comfortably in a suitable, uncrowded condition. Statistics show that with the proper networking with healthcare officials and others that surround them with kindness, aging in place is how we keep them healthier and effectively lower the cost of their overall care.
