Texas - General Volunteer
Holy Family Birth Center (Weslaco, TX)
Come join the legacy of midwifery and maternal health that was started here over 38 years ago to provide services to the at-need population of the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas and beyond. Holy Family is a non-profit 501c3 clinic and free standing birth center and is a unique opportunity to experience and offers community living with the volunteer nurses and staff. There are community living areas, and beautiful grounds to enjoy.
We gladly welcome volunteers and groups interested in assisting with the maintenance of the facilities, grounds, and garden. Some positions are also available for volunteers interested in learning more about midwifery and out-of-hospital birth. Past volunteers have included doulas, medical assistants, public health professionals, social workers, and pre-med and pre-nursing students. Commitments can range from summer projects to longer terms of service. Stipends are available based on experience and commitment.
The ability to speak Spanish is preferred, but not required as long as you have a willingness to learn.
Benefits include free on-site housing, food, access to shared vehicles and community living areas, gardens, and grounds to enjoy. Health insurance available
