For decades, volunteers have come to Holy Family to serve the families of the Rio Grande Valley. From midwives and nurses to babysitters and handymen, volunteers of all types have poured their hearts into Holy Family and shared their time and talents with the community we serve. Most volunteers live and work on-site at Holy Family and quickly immerse themselves in the local culture. Volunteers enjoy time together as a community as well as individual free-time in the surrounding area. Former volunteers are scattered across the globe, as well as future volunteers who have yet to come. All are a special part of the "Holy Family family."
