A Message from our Founder

Eslene Richmond-Shockley

Caring For Others, Inc.

In 2001, with $25 and a calling from above, I began a journey of hope called Caring for Others. Little did I know what was in store. The owner of a warehouse agreed to rent a portion of his building for three months for $1. The space had no heat, no toilet or running water. Fast forward, we have since purchased the building, expanded globally and increased our giving by over 100 fold! Today the journey is far from over. Now in our 14th year, Caring For Others will continue to offer hope to the least of these and, most importantly, give a voice to the faces of poverty. This includes those who have been marginalized and remain invisible to society.

That’s what makes us different. But we cannot operate in a vacuum – volunteers, donors and partners are key to our success. It doesn’t matter where you come from or how you look, poverty is not a respecter of persons. Together we can certainly shift the tides and restore dignity to families in need.
