Volunteer

The CACCC encourages & relies upon the teamwork of staff & volunteers in order to offer the best services possible to the surrounding community in Comal County, Texas. Volunteers contribute their unique talents, skills, & knowledge to help provide personalized attention to clients & their families. As a CACCC volunteer YOU can help us in the ongoing fight against child abuse & neglect in Comal County.

The CACCC loves its volunteers! We couldn't help kids without them. But our mission requires that we be as secure a facility as possible and limit the number of unexpected guests who visit us. We are happy to set up an appointment and give potential volunteers a tour of the center and chat about volunteer opportunities. Please be sure to call before dropping by. You can call (830) 626-2543 ext. 209 and ask to speak to Catherine Piper, the Volunteer Coordinator.
