About Caritas of Waco

Caritas helps families, individuals, and veterans in need through emergency services and case management programs.
Make A Donation
Caritas is able to provide hope to those in need, due to the generosity of community partners and donors like you. Before the pandemic, 26% of Waco families were living in poverty and unable to meet basic needs. Now, during this unprecedented time, more families than ever before, are needing assistance. Your support helps us provide people with not only hope, but food and other emergency services, and the case management resources needed to help them begin their journey out of poverty. Thank you for donating today to support our mission.
To make a donation by mail, please send a check or money order made payable to Caritas of Waco to: 300 South 15th Street, Waco, TX 76701.

Making A Difference Together

"I support Caritas because I believe in the mission and see the need in our community. In addition to the food pantry and the many client services that are offered, I find it very beneficial that Caritas offers job training and certifications which allow the client to become self-sufficient. I encourage everyone to consider supporting Caritas, whether it be financially or as a volunteer. You’ll be amazed by the dedication of Caritas’s staff and actually see the impact of your contribution. "
