The Caring Place envisions a community where everyone has access to the resources and opportunities they need to thrive. Our mission is to provide access to the basic resources and opportunities our neighbors need.
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.
We enjoy the support from 53 churches (12 different denominations) in Bradley County. 134 active volunteers and eleven staff members work together to serve our community.

“These first-person accounts of real life up close- warts and all- are full of ordinary events punctuated with breathtaking joy and sometimes heartbreaking sadness. Like mine, our brothers’ and sisters’ lives are generally wound around a few major themes. For the purposes of this book, we’ve settled on three – stories of love, loss, and redemption.” -Gary L. Riggins Preface
