CanCare is an interfaith volunteer cancer service rooted in the religious community that enables houses of faith to provide a specialized cancer outreach program to their congregants. CanCare volunteers are people of faith serving as goodwill ambassadors to others in need of CanCare’s services.

CanCare CARE Meetings:

The acronym CARE stands for Caring, Accepting, Renewing, and Embracing our partnership with one another. These meetings are between congregation liaisons with CanCare staff to discuss ways on how congregations can support CanCare’s mission to ensure no one endures cancer alone. For more information contact Kristy Elmore at [email protected].

CARE Meeting Dates:

November 6, 2019- Clergy Luncheon
If you would like information on becoming a member congregation or offering our services to your members, please call 713.364.1671 or email Kirsty Elmore at [email protected].

Your congregation member is not meant to endure cancer alone.

If you are interested in connecting your congregation member with a cancer survivor or caregiver to receive one-on-one, general emotional support, visit our support form here.
