About us

The Caring Place envisions a community where everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive. Our mission is to meet needs in love for our neighbors, advocate for community change, and create opportunities to move beyond poverty. We seek to provide immediate access to the basic resources and opportunities that our neighbors need to achieve their goals.

In 2000, four of the larger Churches of God in Bradley County decided to merge their benevolent ministries into one entity and formed Lift and Redemption Ministries. Lift and Redemption Ministries began doing business as The Caring Place in 2005. The organization began to grow as additional churches expressed interest in combining their benevolent efforts with that of The Caring Place. Currently, God has placed Corinne Freeman as the Executive Director. Corinne began with The Caring Place in 2014 and her love and compassion has continued to grow and her commitment to move forward is contagious.

The organization enjoys support from 53 churches (12 different denominations) in Bradley County. 134 active volunteers and eleven staff members work together to serve our community.

Join us Friday, July 19th for our community food drive at Cooke’s Food Store! The Caring Place serves over 1,300 households each month. In the summer, many of our neighbors find it harder to make ends meets with the loss of school meals during the week. In 2018, the families served included over 1,600 children. Since hunger doesn’t take a vacation, we need your help to stock the shelves and help your neighbors this summer. Follow the link below to our Facebook page to learn more!
