Volunteer

Starting with the Board and executive officers, CAPS is entirely a volunteer-based organization.  This helps keep costs down and ensures all funding goes to providing education and support for our members.  To keep things running smoothly, volunteers assist in a variety of areas, and time commitments are as little as a couple hours a month.

Many of our volunteers have a personal connection to Parkinson’s Disease, such as a family member who is dealing with PD.  Other volunteers come from the Central Texas medical community and other organizations that provide ancillary services.  Volunteers don’t need to have a connection to Parkinson’s Disease.

Here are just a few examples of how you help CAPS . . .

  • Helping during our monthly Membership meetings
  • Writing articles for the CAPS newsletter
  • Assisting a facilitator with a PD local support group
  • Providing transportation to/from a meeting for a member
  • Supporting the organization’s business and administrative needs
  • Expanding our social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin
  • Increasing awareness of CAPS in the local media
  • And more!

Willing to lend us a hand?  You’ll join a dedicated team of individuals who are committed to making a difference in Central Texas for those with Parkinson’s Disease. Learn more about Board Member roles and responsibilities, and how you can become involved . . .
