Darling Homes prides itself on not only building high-quality, elegant homes, but on fostering a sense of community within the company and neighborhoods. Every year, Darling Homes employees volunteer their time to give back to the communities they serve, and there are many incredible opportunities for volunteering around both Dallas and Houston.
No matter what area of Dallas you choose to make your home in, areas from Irving to McKinney to Frisco offer dream homes from Darling Homes and communities that are filled with volunteer opportunities and room for growth.
The City of Dallas has partnered with VolunteerNow to create the City of Dallas Volunteer Program which makes finding the optimal volunteer opportunities as easy as possible. With filters that help sort opportunities by location, interests, skills and available times, this website helps match volunteers with programs throughout the Dallas area.
The North Texas Food Bank and its partner agencies offer the chance for Dallas-area residents to get involved and help on a local level, through volunteering time, hosting canned food drives, participating in events and more.

From pet adoptions to gardens and education, Volunteer Houston helps to match Houstonians with organizations in need of assistance by partnering with over 1,200 community groups each year.
