Share your gift. Are you a teacher, singer, poet, artist, chef? We would love to have you share your talent. Just let us know how you want to help.

Pray with Project Transformation Rio Texas! Whether or not you are able to serve directly with PT, we invite you to join us in surrounding our children, interns, families, churches, and volunteers in prayer.

As a way to share stories of faith, PT will be offering a weekly Wednesday devotional, Meditations for Transformation, throughout the summer via email. Sign-up here to receive the weekly devotional.

The opportunities to get involved are limited only by your interests! Contact Kercida McClain, CEO, if there are other ways you might be interested in volunteering your time with our kids that you didn’t see above via kercida@ptriotexas.org. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
