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 we are all called to serve one another. There are so many ways to volunteer at Caritas and I choose to help with our annual fundraiser because it brings much needed money to the mission of Caritas to feed those in need in our great city of Waco. It's been a blessing and a pleasure to serve with other like-minded friends that also have a servant's heart."
