We are CAPGAL
Community Assistance Providers of Galveston County ( CAPGAL ) is an organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for the indigent and less fortunate individuals of Galveston County by providing assistance through our Community Assistance Providers Fund. Assistance can vary from providing prescription medication or utility bills to wheelchairs and hospital beds, food assistance or even travel assistance.
What We Do
What is CAP of Galveston County?
Helping to meet immediate, one-time needs for people in Galveston County is what sets our organization apart. We strengthen our community and raise awareness of the daily struggles that some residents face by encouraging leadership and professional networking among our members and the business community. By providing funds and resources to help our neighbors get back on their feet or deal with a crisis, CAPGAL helps people build a better life today and provides hope for the future of Galveston County residents. CAPGAL meetings include a monthly educational networking luncheon for members and those interested in joining.
How Does Someone request Assistance?
A request for assistance can only be submitted by a current member of CAPGAL. Through networks built with case managers, social workers and local businesses, CAPGAL members can help directly address the immediate needs of people in crisis. Requests for assistance are reviewed by the CAPGAL board and a decision is made quickly, based on the organization’s by-laws and established guidelines. Requests are evaluated on a case by case basis and are approved as funds are available.
As a non-profit agency that does not rely on government funding, your gifts and donations are critical to our mission. CAPGAL appreciates all of the support that it receives so that we can have funds readily available to provide assistance for families and individuals in need.
How is CAPGAL funded?
CAP of Galveston County receives funding through membership dues, donations, grants and fundraising events. As the organization grows, CAPGAL will be able to increase both the amount and frequency of assistance offered.
6/22/20 – Due to the coronavirus pandemic, CAPGAL is holding board and membership meetings virtually. Members will continue to receive a monthly newsletter with updates. Plans are moving forward for our annual fundraiser on Friday, October 2, 2020 at the San Luis Hotel and Resort in Galveston. See our Events page for more details.
