As part of the Mayor's Volunteer Initiatives Program (VIP), ParkHouston has volunteer trainings for citizens interested in getting involved in protecting their communities and helping fight disabled parking abuse.

The Disabled Parking Volunteer Program is designed to help individuals who need accessible parking spaces to have those spaces available. With the generous help of citizen volunteers, ParkHouston helps protect parking space availability for those who need it most.

For a quick overview of the Disabled Parking Volunteer Program, please view the presentation.

Volunteers are required to attend a four-hour training session and pass a background check. Once complete, volunteers are empowered to issue citations within the Houston City limits to those who abuse disabled parking spaces.

If interested in joining our program and becoming a part of our elite team, you can request registration information by email at volunteer.parking@houstontx.gov or by calling 832.393.8676.

Training Schedule:

Trainings are held at ParkHouston, 2020 McKinney, Houston, TX 77003. SCHEDULE INCLUDES SATURDAY CLASSES.  There is no cost for training and parking is free in our parking lot.
