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. Assistance can vary from providing prescription medication or utility bills to wheelchairs and hospital beds.
