Catholic Charities’ Mamie George Community Center serves as a hub for Catholic Charities services in Fort Bend County. The center addresses many of the community’s needs, with an emphasis on low-income residents and seniors.

The center is made possible through the generous support of the community, volunteers and collaborative partners.

Calendar of Events – October 2017

Basic Needs Services

We provide food, rent, utilities, medication and financial assistance and support services aimed at returning individuals and families to self-sufficiency. As we help relieve the overwhelming stress that comes from the lack of basic needs, those in crisis are better able to work towards self-sufficiency.

Trini’s Corner Market

From Monday through Saturday, Trini’s Corner Market is a self-select food pantry with grocery layout allowing residents and senior citizens, based on income and need, to supplement their food budget by selecting among fresh produce, meats, canned foods, breads and dry goods available.

For more information, please call 281.202.6242

Senior Services

We support seniors in their efforts to stay healthy and active, volunteer, build friendships and live independently. We provide companionship and transportation assistance for seniors to travel to and from the center, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping and other vital trips. Other support offered include loving, listening hearts for hundreds of otherwise-isolated seniors, health and welfare monitoring, case management, nutrition education, referrals for mental health, benefits enrollment and/or restoration, social and spiritual needs, and emergency assistance. Financial assistance is available.

Our list of programs is extensive and includes Healthy Transformation, ART Reach programs, Mobile Health Unit, AARP Defensive Driving, arts & crafts, book club, basic computer & internet training and SO much more!
