Provide Support Q&A

We are a volunteer led organization that provides life-changing programs through partnerships in the Greater Houston and Waco areas.

Volunteers must complete a volunteer screening registration process in order to volunteer which includes a background screening to maintain the highest level of safety and care for our clients and volunteers.

We do not currently charge fees for programs or services.  It is important to offer individuals, corporations and foundations the opportunity to support us financially which allows us to carry out our mission to serve this vulnerable population.

We do not have our own building or own physical space to provide programs.  We rely on community partners such as congregations, places of worship, nonprofit organizations and corporations.  These community partners provide space, as well as volunteers and in many cases financial support to CarePartners.

We have more than 70 partnerships with faith-based communities and places of worship. These partnerships are very collaborative, partnering congregation treats a CarePartners program as their own ministry. Our organization’s principals of partnership are inclusive and all congregations of faith or places of worship are welcomed to partner with us.

Supporting CarePartners includes:

  1. Volunteer Support
  2. Financial & In-Kind Support
  3. Partnering Support
