St. Augustine is quoted as saying:

What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

At The Caring Place we have the opportunity to minister to those who are poor and in crisis through services that help meet their basic needs. We have the opportunity to show love, as we were directed in 1 John 3:18 “let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”

 


The Caring Place core services are:

  • Food: We provide bags of groceries.
  • Clothing: Ready to wear clothing for men, women, and children, household items, and toiletries.
  • Social Services: We have licensed social workers on staff who is available to assist families and individuals.
  • Sac Pac: Provides take-home food to school children at risk of being hungry over weekends.  The program sends a sack of food home with 780 children in 15 schools in Bradley county.
  • For information on other programs offered, please go to the “What We Do” tab.
