CARING FOR OTHERS WORKS TO ERADICATE POVERTY AROUND THE WORLD

Since 2001, we have helped people struggling with the effects of a natural disaster, impoverished circumstances, and temporary misfortune live with dignity.

At Caring For Others, we want to help the world see the myriad of people who are largely invisible: the child with no shoes, the senior citizen without basic necessities, or the working mother struggling to make ends meet. This quest to truly recognize the faces of poverty inspires our actions and our mission each day.

At Caring For Others, we strive to create a fulcrum that ultimately leads to the demise of impoverished communities and restores dignity to the least of these. We follow the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who contended, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Through partnerships with social service organizations, government agencies, communities of faith and corporate partners, we provide a continuum of services including distributions of food, new clothing, toys, shoes, furniture and personal necessities domestically and globally. Since our founding in 2001, Caring For Others has broadened its path of dignity and hope across twenty-three metro Atlanta zip codes, the southeast, gulf coast, west coast and Belize, Guyana, Nigeria, Antigua and the Philippines.
