  • Mission:
  • Caring For Others seeks to eradicate poverty on every level through feeding, educating, clothing and housing children and families on the brink of homelessness and prevent the familiar cycle of need many people face today. We are committed to giving those in need a chance for a better life or a second chance for a better quality of living.

  • Overview:
  • We seek to maintain dignity and consistency in the lives of our clients, to renew their hope and restore their strength by moving beyond simply meeting the basic human needs of food and clothing. Caring For Others provides personal and financial support during turbulent times including individual, family and child counseling, money management training, job retention and job placement services. We do our work through a number of structured programs helping wide range of people and families in need.

  • History:
  • Caring For Others, Inc. began in November 2001, helping to restore personal dignity and provide basic necessities to economically disadvantaged children and families, individuals, senior citizens, the disabled and the unemployed in need. We provide a continuum of both on-site services and global outreach assistance to twenty-three Metro Atlanta zip codes and numerous cities and countries throughout the world; CFO also collaborates with government agencies, social service organizations and churches around the state to provide food, new clothing, furniture and other products to people in need. In recent years we have expanded outreach of hope and dignity by developing partnerships with over 11 agencies in and around Georgia, the Southeast and the West Coast; with their assistance, we provide services to the economically disadvantaged in rural communities. Caring For Others has since broadened our path of dignity and hoe across boarders and overseas, partnering and serving impoverished families and communities in countries such as Belize, Guyana, Nigeria, Antigua, the Philippines and Haiti.
