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.
Through its annual grants process, Georgetown Health Foundation (GHF) awarded $910,000 in grants to 20 organizations serving Georgetown residents. Awards were given based on alignment with GHF’s priorities which are focused on basic needs (food, shelter, housing) and social determinants of health (SDOH).
“Ready to get engaged? Not that kind of engaged!” jokes the Community Engagement Manager, Rita Turner. “We want to engage you in the happenings at The Caring Place! We have developed our first online Chat & Chew with our community in mind!” This virtual event will be held Wednesday, September 15th from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
The Caring Place’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the seventh consecutive year that The Caring Place has earned this top distinction.
