GEDCO’s CARES serves families and individuals in crisis by connecting our clients with resources that enable movement towards self-sufficiency. These resources include food and emergency financial assistance services.
CARES continues to be run by an extremely dedicated team, consisting of one full time and one part time employee, and over 100 volunteers. With the generous support and food donations made by GEDCO’s fifty-three Member Organizations, individuals, schools, corporations, government agencies, and community groups, GEDCO’s CARES served over 1500 households in 2012!
CARES was opened in 1993 by a group of devoted volunteers primarily from churches in the Govans neighborhood of north Baltimore. Their vision was to create a centralized place where area churches could send persons in need and know they would be served more effectively and efficiently.
