LEAP (Leisure Education and Art Program)

LEAP volunteers are artists, musicians, hobbyists, fitness instructors, story tellers or creative writers. LEAP volunteers help build skills, teach hobbies or facilitate recreational activities for individuals receiving services at Integral Care’s residential and in-patient programs. Evening and weekend opportunities are available.


Garden Angels

Garden Angels are volunteers who assist in seasonal planting and maintenance of the vegetable, herb and flower gardens located at our facilities in South and East Austin. Garden Angels work independently for the majority of the time with guidance provided as needed by the Volunteer Coordinator. Experienced and novice gardeners are accepted any time of the year!


Clerical & Administrative

Clerical and Administrative volunteers are needed for special projects, consumer satisfaction surveys and more. 


Friendly Visitors

Friendly Visitors provide one-on-one empathetic listening and assistance with the day-to-day operations. They also provide leisure, recreation and life-skills training for individuals served in Integral Care's Behavioral Health residential programs. This is a perfect opportunity for working, or retired, adults. The programs run 24/7 to allow for  greater volunteer schedule availability.


Special Events Volunteers

Special Events Volunteers provide assistance at Integral Care sponsored events including conferences, fundraisers and community awareness activities like the annual NAMI walk, Hill Country Ride for Aids and holiday-related events.
