Advisory Council

The Caring Place was formed in 1985 because of the work of 11 local churches coming together with a common cause under the unifying umbrella of the Georgetown Ministerial Alliance. Click to learn more about Our History.

Twenty-three churches and organizations have since joined The Caring Place family through membership on the Advisory Council. The Advisory Council is tasked with ensuring that The Caring Place stays true to its original mission of helping families in economic crisis in Georgetown and Northern Williamson County. Each member organization has one representative and one alternate representative on the Council, and is allowed one vote per organization. The Advisory Council meets at The Caring Place where representatives can interact with the staff, volunteers and board members on a quarterly basis.

The Caring Place bylaws require that 8 of the 15 members of the Board of Directors are either Caring Place volunteers or members of one of the organizations represented on the Advisory Council. Also, the five member Nominating Committee, formed each year to select new members of the Board of Directors, is comprised of 3 members of the Advisory Council and 2 from the Board.

There is no cost to join the Advisory Council, and membership is open to all interested churches, businesses and other organizations. Member organization agree to provide, and will encourage their membership to provide, regular donations of goods, services and financial support within their means. Member organizations also agree to publicize the purpose and programs of The Caring Place and will encourage their membership to support The Caring Place as volunteers.
