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 didn't have much to feel thankful for this year. Ever since my medical discharge, I have felt family and I would like to thank you and the Caritas Veterans Outreach Program for this blessing and help in hard times...people and services like the one you work for are growing rare. From my family to yours, thank you so much for not letting us fall between the cracks."
