Thank you for expressing an interest in Harris County Public Health.

Many of our volunteers and interns assist with office work. However, let us know if you have a special skill or interest because we may be able to design an opportunity especially for you. You are encouraged to visit our website at: to learn more about the five divisions and four major offices that make up HCPH.
