Compassionate Care

Small acts of kindness go a long way.

The Compassionate Care Program was developed to respond to the needs of patients and their families in crisis. Many families in El Paso struggle to meet basic everyday needs. Injury or illness can intensify their needs due to medical expenses and limited resources.

Crime Victim Services as well as Social Workers at University Medical Center and El Paso Children's Hospital identify patients and families in need, and send a request of items in the hope that we can provide assistance during their difficult time.

Examples of requested items are clothing, food, transportation assistance, schools supplies and toiletries.



Volunteers are needed

Volunteers are needed to help:
•    Organize donation drives to prepare for the need of highly requested items such as toiletries, school supplies, blankets and food.
•    Package donated items for families.
•    Assist with delivery of requested items to families as needed.
