Mission Statement

Servant organization to congregations which develop a non-proselytizing lay caregiving program to assist older adults to remain independent, support younger adults coping with a disability or chronic illness, and provide respite care to family caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease, another dementia, or disability.

Description

The Care Team program is a nationally honored volunteer caregiving program begun by the founders of Interfaith CarePartners in 1986. The program consists of intergenerational teams of volunteers who are recruited, trained, supervised, and supported by staff of Interfaith CarePartners. Presently there are 107 teams in greater Houston consisting of more than 2,100 members who give in excess of 115,000 hours of service annually. Teams provide social, emotional, practical, and non-proselytizing spiritual support to the people they serve. The goal of the program is to enable individuals with long term conditions to remain independent and in control of their lives and circumstances for as long as possible. A more complete description of the program and history of the organization can be found at www.interfaithcarepartners.org.
