Our Mission

Connecting you to make a difference where your skills meet your passion

In a city so large, where people can feel so small, we believe the impact can be great when people use their skills and passions to engage where they live — coming together to restore communities, fight for social justice, and bring hope where it's needed most.

Whether you are a professional looking to use your experiences for good or a non-profit looking to make noticeable change in Houston, Serve Houston connects and trains you to serve with purpose in our city.

Upcoming Gatherings

Your first step in serving Houston. Our Workshops and Meetups are crafted to give you the essentials you need to volunteer where your skills and passions intersect with the needs of an Impact Organization. Filled with interactive activities, opportunities to network with other professionals and nonprofits, and quarterly kickoffs for specific Service Teams and Opportunities… Find out more and get involved!

We don't have any Gatherings scheduled but check back soon because we are working on the next one.
