Become A Volunteer

The Volunteer Process

Genesis appreciates all of our volunteers!
In order to become a Genesis Women's Shelter & Support volunteer certain steps must be completed.

  1. Volunteers at our Shelter must be 15 years of age or older. Thrift store volunteers must be 18 or older.
  2. Complete the volunteer application. Please click here.
  3. Criminal Background Check - All Genesis employees and volunteers are subject to a criminal background check conducted by the Volunteer Center of North Texas. Please fill out this Background Verification Release Form and return to Chandra Adkins via email at or fax at 214.559.2361.
  4. Once your application has been processed, our Community Outreach Manager, Chandra Adkins, will contact you about attending an orientation and you'll be on your way. Please allow two weeks for processing.


The goal of orientation is to teach potential volunteers about the agency's structure, the programs and services offered, and to help them determine what volunteer opportunity best fits their schedule and interests.

For questions about group volunteers, please contact Chandra Adkins at 214-389-7701 or
