Welcome to Project C.U.R.E. — Houston!
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in a Colorado garage in 1987 and has since expanded to seven distribution locations across the U.S., including Houston — the world’s largest medical community. We’ve also grown to become the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies, equipment, and services to doctors and nurses in more than 135 countries. This is no easy feat. The only way we can make it happen is through the help and support of those also willing to get involved — from volunteering to donating, you can help us make a difference.

We cannot wait to see where you go next Cydnee and thank you ExxonMobile CSJP for making it possible host Cydnee.
