NAM Needs an Army of Volunteers

NAM could not fulfill its mission without volunteers. It’s as simple as that. They impact every program in every way.

With every hour of service and every conversation, they make an impact. But most often, they find that volunteering impacts their own lives as well.

There’s a place for you at NAM. You have a one-of-a-kind contribution to make because no one else has your unique blend of experiences, skills, and personality. No one else is you.

NAM is in need of a large volume of volunteers for the up-coming events listed below. If you would like to volunteer for any of these events, please email volunteer@namonline.org.

All of these are great opportunities for groups, organizations, companies, students, and families. If you are interested in volunteering at NAM, please click here to download the volunteer form, or email volunteer@namonline.org for more information.

The health and safety of our community is important to us. NAM is continually following the guidelines set up by the CDC and the City of Houston by requiring all volunteers, clients, and NAM staff to wear a face mask and practice social distancing. NAM will also provide disposable gloves to volunteers working in NAM Resale and the JWNC.
