CaringWorks is a nonprofit 501(c)3 agency working to end homelessness. We go beyond one-size-fits-all housing and services to provide care that is carefully tailored to each client, respecting their dignity and seeing their inherent potential for success. We strive to end homelessness by facilitating access to housing and relevant supportive services. We apply a “housing first” model, meaning we believe that a safe place to live is the first step to stability, then work with our clients to help them discover and address the issues that resulted in homelessness in the first place.
Our approach is individualistic, because each client’s issues are different, and their goals are different as well. Our experienced staff works with clients in a way that respects and renews their dignity, believing deeply in their innate potential.
We focus our efforts on the “hardest-to-serve:” 66% of our clients are chronically homeless, 78% have a history of substance addiction and 64% have a diagnosed mental illness.
In the last 12 years, CaringWorks has served nearly 4,000 clients. We are proud that the organization’s success rate in 2013—as defined by people remaining stably housed after a year—stood at 96 percent.
This year, we need your help to purchase warm jammies and winter coats, scarves and gloves for the kids in our MOVE program. The MOVE program serves single moms with children who were homeless when they came to CaringWorks. All of our moms have behavioral health challenges so it can tough for them to overcome the obstacles they face. We work every day to help them build a foundation for stability and this year we want to make sure the kids have everything they need to stay warm this winter.
