When I decided to connect through volunteer work with the Houston community I e-mailed a dozen organizations listed on the web-site "Volunteer Houston." Omega House was the only response I received. It was a prompt, informative and welcoming response that offered training to fit my schedule. My training was thorough and prepared me very well for my involvement at Omega House. What I've found as a volunteeer is a warm, welcoming, appreciative family of staff and volunteers who care about what they are doing and express that care easily and often to the clients and their families. I've heard family members clients express what a blessing Omega House is, that they don't know what they would have done without it, and how much they feel welcomed and supported by everyone at Omega House. As a volunteeer Omega House is a blessing in my life too.

I started volunteering at Omega House back in February. I didn't think I would like working with a hospice, but gave it a try. I stayed in the kitchen and cleaned the first month or so, but the patients there are so wonderful and the staff and other volunteers are very understanding and let me come out of my shell on my own time. I look forward to going there and helping out the best I can

I have been volunteering at Bering Omega adult treatment center for about 5 months. It is one of the most rewarding and fun volunteer jobs I have ever had. I have been a volunteer in various capacities for organizations in Houston for 30 years and this is one of the best jobs ever. I feel that my time and energy is put to good use and I look forward to going every week. The program is well organized and planned.
