Welcome to The Caring Place

Staff and Board

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. At The Caring Place, we CARE by meeting needs with love as we: Connect, Advocate, Restore, Empower and Equip.

We desire to partner with our neighbors and our community to make lasting, positive change. By helping our neighbors move from surviving to thriving, we are helping all of our community to thrive. Every member of our community has something valuable to contribute to our community as a whole. We believe we are called to meet needs with love to exemplify the love of Christ for all. We invite you to join us in this vision of a thriving and loving community.

We rely on the support of neighbors helping neighbors to fulfill our mission. We are currently blessed with support from 60 churches, representing 12 different denominations in Bradley County, 134 active volunteers, 152 businesses and organizations, and eleven staff members working together in unity and love 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
