I Care In Action

The I CARE In Action program offers Houston Methodist a unique opportunity to make contributions in the Greater Houston community by encouraging its employees to volunteer their time and provide their expertise and passion in support of others. Houston Methodist grants eligible employees some paid time to volunteer at approved community organizations because of our unwavering commitment to the I CARE values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.

Since the program's inception, Houston Methodist employees have given more than 3000 hours of volunteer time to more than 30 charity organizations across the city. Our employees are recognized in the community by the signature red I CARE shirt which symbolizes our commitment to serve beyond our hospital walls.
