Program Partners

Irving Cares partners with the Texas Workforce Center, the Irving Public Library, and many education partners to provide resources for job opportunities and education/training opportunities.

I would like to personally thank Irving Cares for their financial support toward my education. Without Irving Cares assistance I would have had to take a minimum wage job. Because Irving Cares does care about others, I now have the opportunity to provide a great life for my family. I am a certified phlebotomist and will be starting a new career at Carter Blood Care. Thanks Irving Cares, you made a difference in my life, and I couldn’t have done it without you. Your organization has the proper tools in place to change lives, because you changed mine.
