In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and recommendations by federal, state, and local authorities, all volunteer opportunities are cancelled until further notice.

El Centro’s staff and volunteers help communities understand the benefits of a healthier lifestyle. This might involve assisting El Centro at outreach and community engagement events throughout the year or participating at an upcoming garden work day through El Centro’s Growing Roots East End Network (GREEN). El Centro needs volunteers who want to make a positive impact on the lives of our patients. For more information about outreach volunteer opportunities, please contact Obed Canjura, Outreach Coordinator, at or 832-494-1772. To volunteer at an upcoming garden workday, please contact Jorge Olvera, Community Engagement Manager at
