What is CAP?

CAP of Greater Pearland is a project of the 2010 Leadership Pearland, Texas Class. This mission will meet the needs of the Pearland community while promoting leadership and business networking opportunities. The group’s focus is to raise awareness of the struggles that some residents face on a daily basis. Additionally, CAP provides funds and resources to help these individuals get back on their feet or deal with the crisis 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 Greater Pearland 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.

Community Assistance Providers of Greater Pearland (CAP) is an organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for indigent and less fortunate individuals of the Greater Pearland Area by providing assistance through our Community Assistance Providers Fund.

Michele Ayala

Membership Co-chair

After 30 years in healthcare, I took a leap of faith. I made the decision to enter the hospice entity of healthcare.  I am the Community Liaison for Essential Hospice and Palliative Services. I was encouraged to join this awesome team a year and a half ago, and it is the best decision I ever made! 

Years ago it all started with a phone call. I saw an ad run in the paper for an activity director. It said, if you love doing all these things, give us a call. So I did, and come to find out you had to be certified. While working for Texas City ISD for many years, they allowed me to do that once a week. Next thing you know, I was a Certified Activity Director. I worked for 4 skilled nursing facilities in that 30 year period. I held positions of activity director, social worker, admission coordinator,  food service manager, and discharge planner. A position that is one-on-one with the residents is so rewarding!

What I have learned in my new position is time is a thief. That you must take the time to enjoy the moment, time for yourself, and most of all… time with your loved ones. So go out there and make those memories!!!!!
