The Texas Volunteer FireFighter Relief Fund (TVFFRF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Texas Volunteer Firefighters in need of assistance. The TVFFRF was started by volunteer firefights for volunteer firefighters. Our tagline quickly became, “Help Us Help Our Own.”

What happens when a catastrophic event happens to a volunteer firefighter? The Relief Fund was established to help those who help others when they are in need themselves.

The TVFFRF is dedicated to helping volunteers in situations where few others can.  We are volunteer firefighters ourselves, and thus understand what they are going through.  We offer assistance in the form of:

  • Financial Assistance
  • Counseling for Loss of a Family Member / Friend
  • Loss of home due to fire or natural causes
  • Major medical events

It is our duty to help ensure that a fellow Volunteer Firefighter in Texas can make it through the toughest and most challenging time in his or her life.
