The Caring Center in Lebanon, Indiana, works to stabilize families in crisis and to move those caught in poverty towards self-sufficiency. We are the umbrella organization for programs helping the needy of Boone County, Indiana. As the programs offered have evolved, we have also grown and developed. We are overseen by a Board of Directors, and have an Executive Director charged with supervising these programs and coordinating the caring work of our many volunteers.
We help families and individuals living in generational and situational poverty and those who are food insecure. Services that are available at the Caring Center are food , clothing, personal care items, household items, furniture, etc. (View the monthly needs.) We also offer Transitional Housing, Community Gardens, Cooking Club, Table Talk, Life Skills classes, including Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin'-By-World, and we serve as a Salvation Army Extension Unit.
The Caring Center serves thousands every year, continuing its mission of distributing food and clothing through the compassionate care of scores of donors and volunteers. The Caring Center can receive and store frozen food, including meat in large quantities. Donations to the food pantry are greatfully accepted. View this month's Caring Center needs.
