Our Mission Is...
 
“To provide urgent support to people in need in our community”
 
   Caritas of Waco is a non-profit organization that helps anyone who has urgent needs, regardless of sex or ethnicity. The majority of our receipents are residents of McLennan County, although there are no geographical restrictions to receiving services. Receipents are interviewed to determine their needs.
 
Our Vision Is... 
 
 “To eliminate hunger in Mclennan County, Texas, by providing direct services through its food pantry as well as through advocacy, while working with other hunger relief programs in Central Texas.”
 
 
Why Our Programs Are Needed:
 
Because nearly 30 percent of the people in Waco live in poverty.
Because poverty affects the individual, the family and the community
Because children of poverty suffer physical, intellectual and emotional impairment.
Because, TOGETHER, we can give help and hope to those who have little.
