City Care exists to do the work few others are willing to do. We believe in the intrinsic value of every person. It is with love and compassion we advocate for the overlooked in our community.
We provide food for the hungry, relief for the hurting, and hold space for complete restoration of lives that have gotten off course. And with enough endurance, we witness, firsthand, remarkable stories of transformation. We believe in the power of unity. Poverty, homelessness, mental illness and substance use disorders are community issues and deserve a community
response of support for those working to create a better life for themselves and their loved ones. We are better, together.
