Testimonials - What People Say About Care For Others
Care for others came to my rescue after my pumbing was on the brinks If it wasn't for them helping me out with water leaking: toilet not flushing and no sink in the bathroom I would still be carrying water to flush my toilet from my kitchen. Not having a bathroom sink I would have to catch water from my tub to brush my teeth and having back problems it was not the best thing, I appreciate the grant they paid for my repairs.

Dear Care For Others,
We wanted to thank you for helping us with our bills and for the gift cards for our daughter to get school clothes.
When we found out I had Necrotizing Faciitis, we didn't think I would be living today. During this difficult time, you took a huge burden off of us and we can't thank you enough. I have good days and bad days; but healing well. The doctors are confident my skin graph is adhering and I won't need anymore .
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
Care For Others,
I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful blessing of school supplies and clothing gift cards for my kids. My husband's illness took a toll on our family, both emotionally and financially. Being self-employed, we have always had a sprit of self-reliance. In our time of need, the helping hand of Care for Others was an amazing blessing for our family. May God continue to bless those who have blessed us.
Sincerely, R.C Burton, OH
I just wanted to take a minute to say "thank you" all so very much for assisting me during this time of need. Until approximately one month ago when Cleveland Clinic called me with a wonderful job offer, I had been out of work for approximately 14 months. I had worked a couple of very short terms jobs and up until recently I had not qualified for unemployment. I was fortunate to have had a savings account at the time of my job loss which I have totally depleted and was really concerned about what I was going to do. I had even started to consider the real possibility of being homeless and that really scared me.
Finally about a month ago I received a call with a wonderful job opportunity with Cleveland Clinic. All of my interviewing and hard work had finally paid off. Because of your organizations generous "urgent needs grant" which I have recently been approved for I will be able to stay on track and not fall behind.
Thank you all again for answering my prayers and lending a helping hand.
Thank you, thank you thank you so much Care of Others for assisting me and my family during this time of transition. I am very overwhelmed with the feelings of being blessed to know that such an organization exists for people who are in a "tough spot" for a temporary time and that we can be helped without feeling disregarded or lessened because of the need we have at the time.Your Bridge to Employment grant was a true blessing to me and assisting my household in which my two kids reside with me (ages 16 and 8) and not have to fear waking up in the morning and no having electricity or heat due to my inability to make payment at this time. I am so excited to be starting my new job at the end of this month.
Please give my regards to the committee who reviewed my case and let them all know that I am very thankful and grateful to them all. Again thank you. Your diligence and concern were heartfelt and appreciated throughout the process. Blessings to you all.
Thank you to you and Care For Others for all your help. You have made things a little easier and less stressful. I believe that I will be able to get my health back on track with your help. Happy Holidays.
My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The last couple of years has been a real challenge for us. Our faith and trust has brought us this far. Our Jeep is now safe to drive and it was done in time for us to make my
disability hearing on Monday. One day I hope to be able to pay it forward. God Bless you all. S.H. Burton,OH
Hello Care For Others.
I'm just giving you an updated follow-up and big thank you to you and the board members at Care for Others. Once again thank you so much for your helping assistance during a true time of need. These times are so difficult for so many Americans that it's so hard to understand why so many hard working people are able to make it during these times. Here in Tucson, Pima County so many people are loosing there jobs, homes, vehicles, and all that goes along with these dire financial times. I am proof that a resident of my own town couldn't receive any assistance from any of the local programs here in town to assist me with my rent payment on a one time basis. I don't hesitate to tell those that I think might make a difference about the service that I got from you at Care for Others and how it seems so unfair to not be able to get any help right here where we live. I did send that letter to Congress woman Gabby Giffords about the my situation and the lack of assistance that exist.
Now things are still tight for my wife and myself, we can manage to get by. Our oldest daughter and her husband have moved in with us because she had lost her job but they are both working now which really helps us. Don't know what we would have done if we hadn't gotten help from you. Thank you. H.M Tuscon,AZ
I just wanted to say thank you again and I'm sorry I didn't get this note to you earlier.
The helping hands grant you awarded me has made a huge difference in my life by allowing me to avoid a disconnection and get my bill back on track. You helped me get a leg up when I thought that the walls were going to fall in on me. Thank you so much!
Dear Care for Others,
My daughter and I both have had a long past year or more with our medical conditions. Will all the medical bills and prescriptions; I fell behind on many bills. Thanks to the Care for Other's program, I was able to get help with my electric bill and get it caught up. This was a tremendous help and relieved some stress for my current situation.
This is just another way God has kept his promise and I thank you for being a part of that.
Dear Care For Others,
Thank you for believing in me. Thank you so much for the grant for my back rent. As time has gone on, I have become stronger and have been making my payment regularly. I am no longer facing eviction and continue to stay at my apartment. I have recovered and will be able to keep making rent thanks to you. All my worries and stress have turned into happiness.
Thank you again,
Just wanted to send a big thank you to you and the organization "care for others" for helping me with my car repair, fixing my brakes. i couldn't have gotten it done otherwise. i was totally unable to drive my car, it was unsafe. thanks to you and your organization i can drive myself to dialysis again. i thank god for people like you and care for others. it was a blessing indeed. thanks so much, again.....
Laura I cant even begin to tell you how greatful I am. Your help has given me the chance to get straight here again after the suffering we have gone through. I never knew about what you do until United Way told me. I only hope one day I can give back to someone else who needs help.
Thank you so much!
I just wanted to send a note expressing my gratitude for the help that you gave to my family when I received a large pay cut.
Without the help of Care For Others, we would have lost our electricity/heat.
I was a wreck because I had no idea how to keep things going.
With your help, we were able to keep the electricity on.
I received your message about being approved for a Helping Hands Grant and my words cannot show my gratitude. I want to thank you and the organization. You brought tears to my eyes, thank you. Sincerely, K. A. Mt. Dora, FL
I want to thank you so much for all of your help! Things have started to fall into place and started to look up! I am so appreciative of all your help! You really help me and my children out more than you know! I can not thank you enough!! God bless you and your organization!
Thank you again! M. D.
Hi Mark, I wanted to thank you and your foundation for your generosity. The things you paid for us were such a big help and we are really grateful to you and Care For Others. It's hard for me to believe that such generous people exist in this world and that you so graciously helped us with a car payment and one month of my Cobra health insurance. Thank you again for your generosity! I hope that all is well for you and Mary and your entire family! -- Smiles Chardon,OH
Laura, It was so nice to meet you and your daughter in-law. As a man I am so humbled by Care For Others assistance with the I-phone and Proloque2go program. It is going to be put to a lot of use since I now have to go to the Clinic twice daily for re-radiation treatments for 6 wks. Making med. history again. We are looking forward to the fund raiser. Thanks so much. From a humbled man. Thank you. J.Y.
I wanted to send a small note to say a HUGE thank you for your
assistance with my car repair. I recently got divorced and have fallen
upon hard times. Please pass along my thank you to your board as I truly
appreciate your support.
God bless you and the work you do.
Words can't express how thankful I am for you and yours
(organization) help in getting this car fixed. We hear only the bad in
people on a daily basis and rarely hear the good intents and favors
played out by folks like you. I am truly grateful for your assistance.
My Friday has been made ALOT brighter. Me and my family are extremely
Blessings to you and yours, and THANKS again.
I just want to let your organization know how much I appreciate you
guys helping me out in my time of need...My lights were out and I did
not have anyone else to turn to and someone told about care for
others...What a wonderful program you have in place to help those in
need..I just wanted to extend my gratitude for all your kindness, Thank
You so much again I don't know what I would have done if it had not been
for care for others.
R. G. H. Willowick , Ohio
I would like to thank Care For Others for the payment made on my
behalf to fix my car. I really apreciated your assistance. I consider
this a blessing since there are many organizations unable to help people
in need due to so many hardships being experienced. Without your help I
would not be able to work or attend school. With Much Gratitude,
M. M. Painesville, OH
I would like to say thanks so much for your help and your time as
well. There have been so many hard times in my life and to have someone
who cares enough
to do something for me I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.
Being disabled and not being able to move around like I use to
and to be in pain all day everyday this was truly a blessing from
God himself to have people like Care For Others to care for those
of us in need. Thank you, thank you and thank you. God bless.

Dear Care For Others,
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for your agency to assist me in my time of need for me and my daughters. It is a great feeling to know there is still help available in Cleveland for people like me who are working hard and trying to make it.
The B. Family, Euclid OH
Dear Care For Others,
Words really cannot express my appreciation and gratitude for your wonderful grant. For the first time in several months, I may be able to breathe a little easier.
More importantly, I may be able to help provide a decent Christmas for my children. The holidays have frankly been pretty depressing these last several years; this might be one to enjoy, largely because you've given me the breathing space to improve my financial position.
Between your grant and my additional new part-time job, things are starting to look up.
I've called the money a grant, but consider it more a loan. I will repay you somehow, beginning in early 2009.
There is no way to really repay your act of kindness. Money alone cannot do it, so I ask that you call on me if or when you need physical work done. I'm not much of a handyman, but can paint, cut grass, chop wood, etc etc., if you or your clients should ever need those things done.
Thank you once again.
B.J., Chardon, OH
Hello, I would like to thank Care fro Others for their fast response with picking out the refrigerator needed for the space in my kitchen. Care For Others got all the information from me in a matter of 2 days and by the 4th day I knew that we were approved. It was unfortunate that my refrigerator caught on fire but it did and we did not have to go a week without a new one thanks to Care for Others. Since then I have helped a family in need that I have learned about who was in need of food. I went shopping for them and bought the items needed for them to have a Happy Thanksgiving just as I am able to have since the purchase of my new fridge. Again, my children and I thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts and I will continue to spread my blessings as I am able. The T. Family!
Words cannot express out graditude and thankfulness for finding you
and your helping us in our time of great need. We love to help others
and it was very humbling to have to except help and you all were so
kind, considerate, and thanks to you we are now caught up on our
Believe me we will indeed pass on kindness to others to make up for this. And continue helping others and most especially my dog shelters when I can get back to volunteering.
Thank you once again, this will never be forgotten was a huge deal to us and now is a huge relief. Sincerely, T&P.D. Hiram, OH
Dear Care For Others
Words cannot describe the deep feeling of gratitude I get when I think of you and your organization. Your organization, my friends and RAM construction brought hope into a hopeless situation.
When my daughter came home from college and told us that she was pregnant I felt as if my world was ripped out from under me. I have been a single mother for 10 years and have worked hard to provide for my family. She was the oldest of my 5 children and I was very excited for her because she received a full scholarship to go to college. She was starting a new and better life for herself. I was going to miss her immensely but I was so happy that she no longer had to live in our small, two bedroom home, that was very congested and, let’s say, well used. She was headed for a bright future, or so I thought.
Many discussion and tears resulted in her choosing to quit school and come home to have the baby. This was the only decision she felt that she could live with and so, as her mother, I supported her. In my head I was screaming, “what do you mean come home to have the baby, WHERE!” I have slept on the couch for the past 10 years so that my children could share the bedrooms. Where would we put a baby? There was NO room. I was distraught.
I shared these feeling with my friend. She kept saying to me, “Please call my husband, he can help.” So after much thought I called her husband and he came out to the house. This was the day life changed for my family. We have never known a man that could be so understanding and giving. I told him my limited budget and the need for adding on a room for the baby. I thought that we could transform the garage, but he had other ideas.
Thanks to the loving kindness of Care for Others, my friend and her husband, and RAM Construction my family has hope of a better life. We are now in the process of adding on 3 bedrooms and a bathroom to our house. This is a miracle and you are the miracle workers. I could never have dreamed this would happen to me, but it is and I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. My children are sooo excited to have friends come and sleep over for the first time in their lives. I can’t thank you enough for transforming my house into a home.
I am humbled at the generosity and compassion of Care for Others, our friends and all of the wonderful workers from RAM construction. You are my faith brought to life. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my family. My promise is to pass on this spirit of generosity to others wherever I can. Not only have you changed my living environment, but also because of your immense kindness and caring, you have changed who I am as a person. I know that it is not enough, but thank you, thank you, and thank you.
You are forever in my prayers,
On behalf of my family and myself, we would like to thank you very much for assisting us in our time of need. It is nice to know that during these trying times, people still care. A simple thanks is not even close to expressing our gratitude but we will try it anyway. Thanks.
B.E., East Cleveland, OH
Thank you does not cover my gratitude and my heartfelt thanks. My prayers were answered without question by very generous people. Thanks for giving us heat and hope. This has been a humbling life lesson to be on the receiving end--opens up ones eyes a little wider--once again when we get back on our feet I will be the giver with new respect for the receiver. Thanks again. God bless you all. L.C. Middlefield, OH
I would like to thank Care for Others with assistance in paying my electric bill. I fell into some hard times and running across there website was a God send. It has been such a blessing this month to finally not worry about how the electric bill was going to get paid. I am now getting back on track with my finances. I would like to especially thank Laura for being so patient and kind to me while we were getting everything handled. God Bless yall and hopefully one day I will be able to give back. Keep doing the work of the Lord and blessing those who are going through a rough spot and need to know that people out there do care. Thanks again! T.M., Texas
Thank, from the bottom of my heart, you for responding so quickly to my need for help, may God continue to bless your work. I didn't know what I was going to do, You all are angels. Thank You.
I cannot adequately express my thanks to you for your generous help. I
appreciate what you have done for me beyond what words can express. I
will pray for you and your families and your ministry. May you be
blessed (and continue to help many others) God moved mountains in a
weeks time and you were part of the moving.
Thanks for helping pay my mortgage so I wouldn't fall behind!
Dear Caring for others,
Thank you so much for your generosity. You helped me fix my car and pay my rent, both of which had to happen and I had no where else to turn. This was also the first time I realized I had to change something even if it meant I had to start over, which is what I chose to do. I know it will be difficult, but doable. You gave me hope when I had NONE! From my 12 year old son and myself, I thank you. God Bless you all! We need organizations such as yours that help people so they don't lose it all or need to rely on the government.
I would like to express my appreciation for your assistance and
that of Care For Others in helping me find suitable housing. I would
have tried to do this on my own, if it was during warmer weather, since I
was without heat and electricity. The reasons for being without heat
and electricity are complicated due to dependence on state monies for
training, which was halted during my schooling. It has been difficult to
recover from such a financial loss. I am making positive progress but
it is slow. As warmer weather approaches I believe that things will get
better. Once again, thank you.
M.S., Newbury, OH
The B. family would like to thank Care For Others for being such a blessing to our family in our time of financial hardship. Last December, 2007 Care For Others helped us with some heating oil that we so desperately needed. Thank you so much for helping us and I would like to say a great big God Bless to Laura for all the extra time she spent on our circumstances. Thank you. God Bless. The B. Family, Chardon, OH **When we receive our taxes we will try to make a love offering to help someone else out.
We would like to thank you for your assistance. We have since caught up the bills and my husband is back to 40+ hours a week. We still live week to week so to speak but are doing better. We are looking for a new used car and have money put away for that, Thanks to your help .we still have a roof over our heads and my two boys, with your help and toys for tots and a friend that did secret Santa for us had a nice holiday. I am looking for better employment, something with more hours. Thanks again, we are doing ok. Because you were there we are able to be here. N.T. Painesville, OH
