Sharing Hands Respite Experience

Menu (432) 818-1253


Ready to put your time and talents to work?  Want to make a difference in the lives of others?  We offer many positions to suit your skill set and your schedule. 

Respite Care  

If you like working with kids, join us on Friday evenings to help with Respite Care.  We care for children ages 0-18 on most Friday's from 6-10pm.  Check our calendar for dates in Midland and Odessa.  Volunteers arrive at 5pm.  Most come directly from their workplace.  Therefore, we provide  dinner. 

The never-ending task of caring for child with special needs can take its toll on a family.  But together, we can help lessen the load. 

We invite you  to join a great community of people who make a meaningful difference by caring for children with special needs and their siblings so that parents have a chance to rest, spend time together, and connect with friends.   

Application and background check is required.  


In addition to Friday night respite care, we host other events and celebrations throughout the year for our families.   These include child care for children with special needs, and/or fun activities for special families.  Your help would be greatly appreciated during our Halloween Carnival, Sibling Celebration Dinner, Easter Egg hunt, Sensory Santa, and more.  The events are fun for everyone, especially our volunteers.  Thanks for considering joining our amazing team of volunteers.   

We need a volunteer Santa and Easter Bunny.  Suits are provided.  

Contact us to confirm dates see how you can help.  Application and background check is required.

Shooters that SHARE Clay Shoot 

At our Shooters that SHARE clays shoot we host roughly 200 shooters.  We use volunteers for setup, check-in, and golf cart return.  The next event is tentatively scheduled for Friday, July 12th.   

Host a Tour 

Help spread awareness by inviting your friends to learn about SHARE.  We host a small reception and you bring your friends.  The more people who know what we do, the more lives we can impact.   


Our annual appeal letters are mailed in November.  If you have time during the day to help with printing, folding, stuffing and sorting, we would very much appreciate the help.  Contact our office to see about putting your administrative skills to work.
