Care for Real is a 501(c) not for profit serving the Greater Edgewater and surroudning northside communities for more than 45 years. The organization provides free programs and services to our neigbors in need including food distribution five times a week, deliveries to the homebound, a clothing "thrift" shop, a pet pantry, case management referrals and an Employment Resource Center helping clients self stabilize and get back on their feet.
Care for Real is a lifeline for all. Prior to 2007, Care for Real served approximately 10,000. But when the economy collapsed, the numbers of folks seeking assistance began to skyrocket. By the close of 2016, Care for Real will have served over 100,000 - the majority being senior citizens and families with kids under the age of 18.
Care for Real. Feeding our community with Compassion, Commitment and Concern.
