If you're an attorney who can provide pro bono services, our clients need your help. You can join the many private lawyers who are helping TRLA provide free legal services to low-income veterans, victims of consumer fraud, asylum seekers, and many others who otherwise would have no access to representation.

Since TRLA attorneys serve 68 Texas counties and work in at least 45 different practice areas, you can choose how you want to help. Through our Volunteer Form, you can indicate your area of expertise.

VOLUNTEER FOR DISASTER LEGAL SERVICES

TRLA has helped Hurricane Harvey survivors get nearly $450,000 in FEMA aid that was unfairly denied to them. But there are thousands more survivors who need our help to get the federal aid they deserve. Most recently, our Disaster Legal Aid Team has also been deployed to the Rio Grande Valley, where residents are struggling to recover from devastating June flooding. If you can help us represent Texas' many disaster survivors, please fill out our general Volunteer Form.

This position requires a two hour training where we walk you through each of the disABILITYsa programs, show you how to set-up our information table, and prepare you to answer some basic questions about the organization regarding programs, volunteer opportunities, and ways others can get involved. You'll accompany us to various information fairs, and then once you're ready, you'll take off on your own. Outreach volunteers are a big part of fulfilling our mission to educate, advance, and engage.

Volunteer with a program:

Utilize your skills and expertise to help change a life or our community. These volunteer opportunities allow you to share your expertise and experiences with others in the community to help effect positive change.

disABILITYsa programs would not exist if it weren't for the long-term commitment of those who are serving on our planning teams. From budget to logistics, our planning team members work to plan and implement the mission of disABILITYsa into our programs that benefit our community.

disABILITYsa Volunteer Team: 

Join this team of individuals as we get together and volunteer in our local community.

The Service & Leadership program identifies opportunities and provides training for individuals with disabilities who are interested in serving the San Antonio community by engaging in volunteerism, service on nonprofit boards, and participation in strategic conversations about the future of our community. While there are other opportunities for people with disabilities to learn to advocate for themselves, there are few programs that expect, encourage, and empower these citizens to advocate for and serve others.

This opportunity is for individuals with disabilities.

Office hours are irregular, please schedule an appointment in advance.

Tutoring is available for those who are 18 years and older and offered once a week for 90 minutes.

The Prosthetic Foundation was established in 2010 as a 501 C (3) nonprofit organization to help uninsured and under insured amputees throughout Texas. The Prosthetic Foundation is committed to ensuring that amputees not only receive a prosthesis but also receive the follow-up care that is essential in the successful outcome of regaining mobility and independence.

The loss of a limb can create a severe challenge and prevent an amputee from being able to perform the activities of daily living that many of us take for granted. The physical and psychological independence that a prosthesis can provide not only affects the amputee but can make a world of difference for their family and everyone around them.

Having a prosthesis is also important in preventing additional health complications that arise from being sedentary in a wheelchair.

If you are interested in volunteering with The Prosthetic Foundation, please contact us at (210) 237-4400.

In order to address the impacts of COVID-19 and to support Texas’ continued economic recovery, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is implementing a Service Industry Recovery (SIR) child care program to help low-wage workers in TWC-specified service industries who generally operate in close quarters with their customers and whose jobs cannot be accomplished remotely.

Highlights of the SIR program:

  • 12 months of eligibility
  • $0 parent share of cost
  • Less required eligibility documentation

(While TWC is targeting aspects of the service sector with SIR child care, all families continue to have access to TWC’s regular low-income child care subsidy program.)

Eligibility Requirements:

At least one parent must be currently employed or entering employment in one of the following TWC-specified service industries:

One-parent households must be working a minimum of 25 hours per week and a two-parent household must be working a total of 50 hours per week to qualify.

The family income is at or below 75 percent of State Median Income (SMI). To see if you meet this requirement, click here and scroll down to the family income table.
