Public Service

Our Public Service Committee is led by Amy Fritcher, who is a key proponent in visualizing and orchestrating our Coastal Bend chapter membership acts of giving. Her selfless efforts in giving to our community does not go unnoticed. Amy has been a key contact in arranging and committing to these organizations. Please reach out to her if you would like to get involved, or have a suggestion of a non-profit organization in need.

The Purple Door


The Purple Door is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Corpus Christi, Texas. Our agency provides FREE services to victims and survivors of family violence and sexual assault throughout a 12-county region of South Texas. We offer support and empowerment to individuals through a safe shelter, non-residential services/programs, and outreach.

All services are confidential and available free of charge to victims and survivors staying at the shelter and those residing elsewhere in the communities we service.

CASA of the Coastal Bend


CASA of the Coastal Bend’s mission is to advocate for the best interest of children in Nueces and Aransas County foster care. Our trained Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) gather information and evaluate the needs of the children. These volunteers work collaboratively with families and other associated professionals to provide valuable information to the judge. A CASA volunteer is a consistent presence in a child’s life during the process of the case. Many of the children that CASA Volunteers work with have come from hard places of abuse and neglect. They have not formed normal attachments, have suffered trauma and have related behavioral issues. This video explains these issues and how we work with these children.
