The Caring Place was founded in 1985 by Yoli Branson & Marty Maxwell - two women in the community with a vision.
They approached the Georgetown Ministerial Alliance and asked them to create a single place where people needing emergency assistance could go for help.
Today, The Caring Place continues to the mission for which it was created back in 1985. It remains a local ministry of the community which serves the community. The Caring Place exists because of the generosity of the Georgetown community and because of the confidence the community has in the ability of The Caring Place to step up, and not step over, our neighbors in need.fulfill
