Community Assistance Programs

CARING FOR OTHER PROVIDES FOOD, CLOTHING, UTILITY ASSISTANCE, RENTAL HOUSING ASSISTANCE, TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANT TO PERSONS EXPERIENCING FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES AND ARE IN DANGER OF BECOMING HOMELESS

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our Emergency Food Assistance Program includes a pantry stocked with assorted meats, canned goods, basic staples and household items such as: paper items, detergent, diapers etc. The purpose of the emergency food assistance program is not to restrict our clients from overuse but to sufficiently assist them and encourage them through their difficulty. The emergency food assistance program is zip code restricted and requires a needs assessment so that we can properly service the individual or family. We also include our seniors and disabled individuals that have little to no income. This program allows our seniors and those who are disabled to receive food and household/personal effects that they would normally have to go without because of the high costs of medicines and fixed incomes. Our goal is to help alleviate hunger by providing the necessary food to the people who come through our doors for assistance.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide meaningful improvement in the quality of life and economic opportunity for low-income individuals and families.

Give those in need a chance for a better life or a second chance for a better quality of life.

Break the cycle of hunger, homelessness and poverty by providing critically needed assistance to both individuals and families.

Creating and implementing community specific programs that will enrich not only individuals but families as well. These programs will consist of several facets designed to help move each family from their current impoverished situation into a more sustainable quality of life. Developing micro-economic centers that are indigenous to the land and community will be the primary focus in the Caring For Others facilities in countries abroad.

We have already established two other NGOs in Antigua and Nigeria and are currently working on a third in Guyana South America. With these NGOs we will be able to adequately produce land indigenous programs for the overall betterment of some of the most impoverished areas.

Currently we have been able to garner the two international NGOs and are currently working on a third and a fourth. We have not yet implemented the micro-economic centers yet but they are in process.
