  • Mission:
  • CARE Chest is a Northern Nevada non-profit agency serving individuals in need by providing medical resources, free of charge.

  • History:
  • Founded in Reno in 1990 as a grassroots effort by three local pharmacists to recycle medical equipment (the Durable Medical Equipment Program), CARE Chest has evolved into a multi-service non-profit agency recognized by area hospitals and social service agencies as a vital medical resource for Northern Nevada’s impoverished and underserved populations. Over time as various medical service gaps were identified by both our constituents and local health organizations, we implemented additional programs to fill those gaps, including our Emergency Prescription Program in 1993 and our Diabetic, Respiratory and Liquid Nutrition Programs in 1997. From 334 Northern Nevadans served in 1992 to 9,830 in 2011, CARE Chest remains committed to improving the quality of life for all Northern Nevadans. To date, more than 93,000 people have relied on CARE Chest for 130,000+ medical items needed to remain healthy, independent and safe in their own homes and communities.
