The Caring Place

About The Caring Place

“Since 1985, The Caring Place has provided for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way.  Through two thrift shops, The Shops at The Caring Place and Second Helping, both in Georgetown, the organization is able to pay all operating expenses to serve a growing community.  All monetary and food donations directly benefit neighbors needing food, utility, rent, transportation or medical assistance.  The Caring Place is a community-based and community-supported organization.”
