MAGNIFICAT HOUSES- Volunteer Opportunities in the following areas:

For Volunteer Office please contact
To register to Volunteer please visit

Fundraising and Business Office help is always appreciated! Or offering as-needed help on Special Projects or Special Events.

The Mustard Seed (Our Thrift/Consignment Shop): Volunteers are always needed to assist our residents in learning new skills. You can help with organizing clothing and goods donated to The Mustard Seed–and arranging them attractively in the ever-changing landscape.

Loaves & Fishes (Our Soup Kitchen): Volunteers are often needed at Loaves & Fishes at 2009 Congress (77002). With at least 200 mouths to feed (usually more), six days a week, every volunteer has plenty to do and plenty to feel good about. Some bring or donate food, cook at home or on site, serve and stay for clean-up.

Our ICCD Accredited Clubhouses: We host this international organization serving the mentally ill from two campuses-St. Joseph House in Midtown Houston and the Dona Marie Clubhouse in Southeast Houston. Many Magnificat residents are also Clubhouse members, and other members come for full-day programs. Both facilities offer serene, spacious grounds and gardens. Volunteers work alongside members in useful tasks designed to build skills (and confidence). Volunteer horticulturists are always needed, as are those interested in teaching basic or advanced communication skills (a good place for volunteers to share any expertise, such as computer skills, languages, GED preparation, cooking, art-it's your call). Special events coordination is always needed and appreciated!

Adopt a House: Consider making one of our houses your house. A place where you-or your organization-will make a special commitment to take care of special needs of the residents, or the structure, or both. Some houses have as few as six residents, others as many as eighteen. Perhaps you'd like to sponsor a house party (always anticipated by residents). Or plant an herb garden. Or supervise residents in maintenance tasks. Or just show up to visit residents with magazines and cookies. Or drive a resident to the doctor. Or redecorate the living room. Consider yourself a House Parent–one who sees a need and takes the initiative to address it.

Adopt a Resident: Can you be a special friend to someone who has no family support? Visit when you can. Plan a little outing. Drop by occasionally, perhaps with a candy bar or a new comb. Phone to check in. Personal connection goes a long way in healing someone's outlook.
