Goals & Outcomes

Our Goals

  • identifying and addressing the needs of the Irving community
  • providing people with services in a respectful and dignified manner without regard to race, color, gender, age, disability, religion or national origin
  • partnering with people in developing solutions that lead to self-sufficiency
  • working with other agencies and organizations for greater impact and effectiveness
  • assuring donors and supporters of exemplary management and fiduciary practices


In the past fiscal year a total of 1,388 volunteers donated more than 15,800 hours working in all areas of the agency.  Receptionists, Case Managers and food pantry workers donated hours to the Emergency Assistance Program. Volunteers assist with Job Search Seminars and resume writing for job-seeking clients. 


Irving Cares provides a hand up, not a hand out.

Residents of the City of Irving may be able to receive one week’s worth of nutritious groceries. Residents in need may also qualify for emergency assistance with a housing payment, a utility payment, transportation, or non-narcotic prescriptions. Irving Cares asks financial assistance recipients to complete a one-hour budgeting training online.

Irving Cares also offers Invest in Yourself, a comprehensive, relational approach to helping people articulate and achieve their goals-both big and small. Many people have goals relating to obtaining employment, strengthening finances, and becoming self-sufficient.
