Who We Are


The Caring Place is funded by donations from our generous community, grants, and proceeds from our thrift stores, The Shops at The Caring Place and Second Helping.  We assist families in financial crisis with food, clothing, rent and mortgage assistance, utility bill assistance, certain medical, optical and dental procedures and many other basic services.  Our thrift stores provide 65%-70% of our budget each year and covers 100% of our operating costs. This means, 100% of your monetary donations go directly to helping our neighbors in financial crisis!

The Caring Place receives no county, state or federal dollars, and continues to rely on the generosity of the communities we serve to enable us to continue to fulfill our mission of helping area families in need.

Thank you for your continued support that allows us to meet that need in our community.

If you need further financial information, please contact Ginna O’Connor, Executive Director, at 512-943-0700.
