Texas Advocacy Project Staff
Legal Phone Line Volunteer
Volunteering at Texas Advocacy Project is a rewarding opportunity to give back to the community and learn a lot in the process. The attorneys and staff who work here are always willing to teach and are genuinely committed to finding solutions to domestic violence. As a hotline volunteer, I enjoy having one-on-one contact with the people the Project serves because I hear the relief in their voices that someone is here to help. This is a wonderful organization with great people who strive to make a difference in women's lives.
