Who We Are

Caring For Others, Inc. is an international human services organization that provides food, clothing, and a continuum of services to families struggling with the effects of a natural disaster, impoverished circumstances, and temporary misfortune.

Our Mission

To restore hope and dignity to families impacted by poverty. At Caring For Others, we believe that poverty doesn’t have to be permanent. It’s a complex issue that, when tackled head-on, can be eradicated— one family at a time.

THOSE WITHOUT BASIC NECESSITIES DESERVE TO BE SEEN.

At Caring For Others, we want to help the world see the myriad of people who are largely invisible: the child with no shoes, the senior citizen without basic necessities, or the working mother struggling to make ends meet. This quest to truly recognize the faces of poverty inspires our actions and our mission each day.

At Caring For Others, we strive to create a fulcrum that ultimately leads to the demise of impoverished communities and restores dignity to the least of these. We follow the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who contended, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Through partnerships with social service organizations, government agencies, communities of faith, and corporate partners, we provide a continuum of services including distributions of food, new clothing, toys, shoes, furniture, and personal necessities domestically and globally. Since our founding in 2001, Caring For Others has broadened its path of dignity and hope across twenty-three metro Atlanta zip codes, the southeast, gulf coast, west coast and Belize, Guyana, Nigeria, Antigua, and the Philippines.

THE IMPACT OF POVERTY IS PERSONAL AT CARING FOR OTHERS.

Our founder, Ms. Eslene Richmond Shockley, is well-acquainted with the hardship and pain of poverty. Take a quick glance inside her story.
