Volunteer Programs

What is a Volunteer?
The term "volunteer" applies to any individual who, without compensation or expectation of compensation, performs a task on behalf of the Harris County Hospital District after having been officially approved to serve in a volunteer capacity by the Volunteer & Guest Services Department.

Volunteers are recruited, trained, processed and placed through the Volunteer & Guest Services Department in collaboration with each department where volunteers are placed.
