United Way of Tarrant County depends on the giving nature of volunteers to make a real impact. In fact, volunteers help make it possible for us to continue supporting the Tarrant County community. Last year, thousands of people volunteered over 30,000 hours.

We are continuing to identify the most pressing volunteer needs in our community. Due to the current COVID environment, in-person volunteer opportunities are limited and require adherence to CDC guidelines. Remote and virtual volunteer opportunities are readily available to engage from the comfort of your home or workspace. Suggested activities include our Long-Term Care Notecard Project , Teacher Appreciation Notecard Project , Veteran Notecard Project and T-shirt Tote Bag Project.

You can also learn more about volunteering with our Ombudsman and VITA programs. As an ombudsman volunteer, you will enjoy a certification course and flexible hours as you support long-term care residents by visiting, listening, and advocating for their quality of life and care. As a VITA volunteer, you will participate in online training for a role of your choice such as tax preparer, savings ambassador, greeter, or interpreter.

For corporate GROUPS only: To submit a Day of Caring volunteer request, please fill out this form and a member of our team will be in touch with you soon.

Other volunteer inquiries may be directed to volunteer@unitedwaytarrant.org, or volunteers may contact one of our partner agencies directly.

Please note that we are unable to fulfill court-mandated community service hours at this time.
