We love our volunteers!
We are looking for people who are passionate about what we do, are great communicators, love working as part of a team, and have positive energy and personalities. If this describes you we would be happy for you to become a part of the Halo House team and donate your time and talents to our mission.
At Halo House, there are a lot of things that need to be done – answering phones, assisting guests, moving in new residents, pulling weeds, minor repairs, and everything in between. Whether you want to volunteer with a group or just on your own, we have something for everyone. Getting started is easy, just click the Volunteer Now button and you will be on your way to making someone else’s life a little better each day!
Our Mission: Halo House Foundation supports blood cancer patients and their caregivers by providing affordable, fully furnished, temporary apartment housing to enable access to lifesaving treatment in the Texas Medical Center.
Our Vision: One day, no one battling blood cancer will have to worry about where they are going to live during treatment in Houston, or going bankrupt while paying for living, eating and parking expenses here, and their rent or mortgage back home. We believe that providing a “home away from home” and easing the family’s financial burden, their focus can be directed toward healing.
Qualifications: We are looking for people with good verbal and written communication skills, basic knowledge of Word and Excel, familiarity with the Halo House website and services we offer and who want to contribute to something bigger than themselves.
Experience you DON’T need: Information systems, knowledge of blood cancers, knowledge of doctors or other existing housing facilities in the Texas Medical Center, or apartment management experience.
Halo House Heroes

- A person who, in our opinion, has special achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model to us and to others.
- A person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
People need heroes because heroes save or improve lives and because heroes are inspiring. Heroes elevate us emotionally; they heal our psychological ills; they build connections between people; they encourage us to transform ourselves for the better; and they call us to become heroes and help others.
