United Christian Care Center

Posted by Katrina Smith. Posted in Front Page

The primary mission of the United Christian Care Center of Vidor is to assist low-income families in the Vidor area by providing free food and clothing to qualified individuals once a month. The Christian Care Center is an all volunteer organization that is supported by donations from local churches, individuals, and grants. In addition to providing food and clothing, the Center has served as a distribution point for the Entergy fan program. This program provided fans for low-income elderly and disabled individuals.

If funds are available, the Care Center also provides school supplies at the beginning of the school year for 100 students and distributes holiday baskets to 300 families. A representative from the Southeast Texas Food Bank comes to the Care Center at least once a month to assist people in applying for food stamps.

The Christian Care Center is currently open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon and is located at 293 Wilson Street. To request assistance, please bring a photo ID and current utility bill showing residence in the Vidor area. 

For additional information, please call the Christian Care Center at (409) 769-2861 or e-mail the Center at vuccc@att.net.
