The Mission of The Caring Place is to provide for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way.

News & Notes

When it comes to the services offered at The Caring Place people may think, “I will never need that.”  “I won’t ever have a problem paying my electric bill because my husband and I both worked for years and saved.”  “My spouse has a good paying professional job, so I won’t ever need a Food Pantry to make ends meet.”  “I was a teacher and have a pension. The Caring Place is for other people.”  These are probably common thoughts until a crisis hits close to home.  Neighbors who utilize The Caring Place have a variety of reasons and life circumstances for doing so.  In fact, Cindy Newman could have easily said the statements above.

The Caring Place has opened up its sponsorship application period for its signature fundraising event, Deep in the Heart of Caring, which will be held on October 5th at Schwertner Ranch Event Center. The organization requests those wishing to sponsor this event to visit www.caringplacetx.org/deepintheheart or call Rita Turner at rturner@caringplacetx.org for more information. A variety of sponsor levels provide a wonderful recognition opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses wishing to increase support to a worthy local cause.

The Caring Place recently was awarded a $24,000 grant by Seeds of Strength to further develop our Senior Independence Program.  Our Program Manager, Kathleen Hopkins, shared a little about the program on the organization’s grant voting night. One of her program participants shared a personal story as well.  Since this program is so new and the stories that come out of it are so impactful, we wanted to share that presentation with everyone.  Find below Kathleen’s unabridged presentation to the group.
