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.

The Caring Place Statistics 2016:

  • 1,166: Average number of households served each month.
  • 13,888: Total number of children who were assisted through The Caring Place.
  • 270,000: Total  pounds of food given to those in need.
  • 26,877: Total number of Sac Pacs provided to elementary and middle school students.
  • 1,009: Number of families assisted by Neighbors in Need
  • 261: Number of homeless households  served.

 The Caring Place is blessed by a community of volunteers. In 2016, more than 160 active volunteers contributed their skills to ministering to the needy of Bradley County by working at The Caring Place. Volunteers greeted clients, assessed need, packed food bags, sorted clothing and encouraged many people through prayers, kind words, and smiling faces.
