Make a Difference! The Compassionate Care Fund responds to the urgent needs of patients and their families during their time of need. An unexpected, serious illness or injury can make an already difficult financial situation for patients and families feel insurmountable. Families assisted by the Compassionate Care Fund receive assistance at a time of desperate need and nowhere to turn for support. When normal activities such as traveling to the doctor or a therapy appointment becomes no longer financially possible, or if a family has nowhere to stay while a child from out of town is hospitalized, or worse yet, there just isn’t any money for meals, the Compassionate Care Fund can help. When a family must choose between a utility bill or medication, the Compassionate Care Fund’s goal is to be able to fill the gap and lend a hand. Your donation will directly impact a fellow El Pasoan's life. Donate and make a difference today!

In addition to supporting Foundation events and activities,the Volunteer Corps manages Project CARE, a program that provides free medical equipment to patients in need, and the Compassionate Care Fund which provides basic needs to patients and families in crisis. The El Paso Health Car Seat Safety Program, also managed by the Volunteer Corps, works to improve safe travel for children in the greater El Paso area by holding monthly events where families can have their car seat checked and a new car seat provided if needed.
