How to Get Help
Welcome to The Caring Place
We can help with the most basic of all human needs: food, clothing and shelter. Our areas of assistance include groceries, clothing and necessary household items, financial assistance for rent and utility bills, some medical bills and prescriptions, some transportation costs, and more.
