About CAP of Clear Lake
Community Assistance Providers of Clear Lake (CAP) is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for indigent and less fortunate individuals of the Bay Area Community by providing assistance through our Community Assistance Providers Fund. Assistance can vary from providing prescription medicine or utility payments to purchasing wheelchairs and hospital beds. .
In existence since April of 2005, CAP has approximately 60 members who dedicate their time and funds to support the mission of the organization. The group’s focus is to raise awareness of the struggles that some Bay Area Houston residents face on a day-to-day basis. Secondly, CAP provides funds and resources to help these individuals get back on their feet or deal with the crises they are facing.
How Does Someone request Assistance?
Those in need of assistance are often referred by case managers, hospital social workers, nurses and field staff. Once a request has been submitted to a CAP board member, the board is polled and a decision is made based on the organization’s bi-laws and guidelines. Grants are evaluated on a case by case basis.
Where Does Cap Get Funding?
CAP of Clear Lake receives funding through membership dues, donations and by hosting an annual fundraising event. As the organization grows in both membership and fundraising, CAP will be able to increase both the amount and frequency of grants offered.
