We began as a humanitarian outreach program of
Lifeline Chaplaincy in June of 1997. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit
program which provides short term emergency funding (primarily
for hotels, food, or parking) to patients and their families
who find themselves stranded without financial resources.
Assistance to patients is provided through social work
department in select Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth &
Central Texas area hospitals.
Assess the needs of the patient and help determine
if the patient qualifies for funding. The
program assists patients and families in need
without regard to their illness/injury, ethnic
background or religious preferences.
Can feel at ease to know that 95% of the money
donated to the Compassionate Touch program
goes to the patients in need. Funds come from
caring individuals, corporations, foundations,
and faith groups.
