Care for Others is a faith-based organization that strives to prevent hardworking individuals and families from potentially entering the cycle of poverty by providing them with financial assistance during a particularly difficult time. With a focus on returning to self sufficiency through hard work, Care for Others provides assistance to those who are willing to work, but are temporarily unable to manage their day to day expenses due to circumstances beyond their control.

“One of the Great rewards in life is the ability to give back. It's about how we affect our communities, how our personal acts can change the lives of others, and how we express our gratitude for all that we've earned and achieved. Together we can make a difference.”
Mark Mekota - CFO President
How We Help
Meet Joseph... As a recent “Helping Hands Grant” Recipient, Care For Others purchased an iPhone and application called Proloque2go. After fighting several battles with cancer, along with multiple surgeries, Joseph was left unable to verbally communicate, but through the Proloque2go application he is now able to send text messages, as well as pre-program phrases and sentences that the iPhone relays through a digital voice.

Care for Others was formed with an idea to help hard working families avoid entering the cycle of poverty by providing financial assistance in times of crisis. We strive to provide hope to working families and individuals who, no fault of their own, find themselves in need of temporary help to get them through a difficult time.
With our mission in mind, for this year's 8th Annual Harvest For Hope Fundraising Event, we will be changing our focus slightly, as we have one of our own in need.
Blaze Monaco a single parent and former Executive Director of Care for Others has recently been diagnosed with 2 types of breast cancer and multiple tumors. This July she underwent surgery as a double mastectomy was advised. Due to the surgery and pending long treatment program she will be unable to work for quite some time and needs our help. Please read her entire story here.
This year's fundraiser will be a benefit for Blaze and her family. Your attendance and support at our 8th annual Harvest for Hope will help keep the family together and reduce the overwhelming financial burden cancer has caused. I look forward to seeing everyone at the event and thank you for your prayers.
