In support of Houston Methodist's commitment to the I CARE values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence, eligible employees are encouraged to take time off to volunteer at approved community organizations through I CARE in Action, the system’s official employee volunteer program. Since the program's inception, Houston Methodist employees have contributed more than 30,000 hours of volunteer time to the Greater Houston area. With more than 40 participating nonprofit partners, employees are able to give their time and talents to support the most vulnerable of our community.
