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 UMC identify patients and families in need and send a request of items in the hope that we can provide assistance during their difficult time.

Suggested donated items include clothing, food, transportation assistance, school supplies and toiletries.

Volunteers are needed to help by:

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

Donors make a difference in the Compassionate Care Program.
