Frequently Asked Questions

At Interfaith CarePartners, we understand that people challenged by illness and age and their caregivers need both support and resources, but are often uncertain where to turn, or to whom. We’re here to help. Here are a few of the questions we’re most often asked.

What services does Interfaith CarePartners provide?

By helping to form and sustain trained volunteers through our Care Team® program, we provide support and assistance with the basic activities of everyday living with the ill, infirm or aging, and respite to their primary caregivers. We also provide caregiver support services such as educational caregiver conferences and caregiver support groups.

Who do you serve?

Through volunteers in local congregations, we serve individuals and families whose independence and self-esteem are challenged by disabling conditions and chronic illness.

How do I find services in my area?

A staff member can help you find services in many areas of greater Houston. Please contact us by e-mail or phone.

How can I locate a Caregiver Support Group?

We offer a series of monthly meetings called Common Ground at which caregivers meet, share and identify resources. These meetings are facilitated by professional staff and lay volunteers. Please call or e-mail us for times and locations.

Must I belong to a congregation to receive services?

No. Some services are coordinated through local congregations, but membership in those congregations or any congregation is not a prerequisite for Care Team® services.

How do I contact Interfaith CarePartners?

You may reach any of our staff by phone or e-mail. See our staff page for a listing of staff members, their roles, and their contact information.

How do I request services, or refer someone for services?

To learn more about our services, request service, or refer a friend or loved one, please contact us by phone or e-mail. Our staff will be pleased to discuss your needs or interest in one or more of our services.

How can I start a Care Team® in Greater Houston?

Please call us to discuss how we might collaborate to start a Care Team® in your area. We welcome the opportunity to speak with your minister, pastor or rabbi about serving together with you.

How can I volunteer?

We’re glad you asked. Volunteers are the heart and hands of our work. We receive help from volunteers with special events, office projects and public relations. Again, contact us to see how we might serve together with you. Call 713.682.5995.

How can I support Interfaith CarePartners?

You can support the work of Interfaith CarePartners through your tax deductible gifts, by volunteering, and by telling others about our services.

How much do your services cost?

Like all charities, we have an operating budget supported by donors. The generosity of our donors enables us to offer our services to clients and their caregivers, congregations and the dedicated Care Team® volunteers without charge.

Do you offer a transportation program or financial assistance?

No, not at this time.

Do the volunteers provide cleaning or homemaking services?

Care Team® services are offered to assist the infirm, aging, or chronically ill with the basic activities of daily living, and to provide caregivers with respite or time away from their caregiving activities. This role is not designed to provide our clients with regular cleaning and homemaking services.
