At Tender Heart, all patients and their families are treated with compassion, dignity and respect. We focus on the patient and family. Hospice is about hope and living the rest of your life with comfort and dignity and Tender Heart Hospice does that.

Tender Heart Hospice Care needs caring volunteers to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. Just a few hours a week can make a lasting impact on the lives of others. No skills or licensing needed, just a caring and tender heart for others. On-going training is provided to all volunteers. Volunteers must be 18+ years old and have a valid driver`s license, auto insurance and reliable transportation.

Volunteers provide added support to our patients and their families in many ways. Volunteers may provide companionship and listening, respite and support for family, read/write letters, facilitate life review, do arts and crafts, do scrapbooking, play music, provide light housekeeping, play a game, watch a movie or sew bibs or quilt lap blankets for patients. Volunteers are also able to assist with administrative tasks in the hospice office or assist in our bereavement program. Hours are flexible.

With our C.A.L.F Program we partner with local schools to donate over 5,000 pair of shoes a year and scholarship students to participate in our events.

The Thank You Darlin' Foundation's mission is to help disadvantaged youth experience academic and personal success through the arts. We carry out this mission through supplemental teaching, after-school programs, youth anthology publications, spoken word performances, and poetry slam competitions. 

Across the nation students are struggling and failing because of a decline in literacy skills, and this is especially true for economically disadvantaged youth. The National Assessment of Adult Literacy reported that 85 percent of all youths who interface with the juvenile court system are illiterate. In addition, many Texas school districts have experienced drastic cuts to funds for the arts and after-school enrichment programs. Unfortunately, those at greatest risk for harm are children from low-income families living in impoverished neighborhoods.

General Needs:

Our Voice2Youth program unites the arts with literacy. It is our core program, a quality supplementary education program aligned with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) guidelines for English Language Arts, Poetry, and Drama.

We offer service learning opportunities in nonprofit management, marketing, and K-12 teaching experience.
