MORRIS – We Care of Grundy County offers services to Grundy County residents who earn an income of 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level or below, ranging from
food, clothing, rent/mortgage assistance, utility or back-to-school assistance.
“We Care was established to help our Grundy County residents during times of crisis,” We Care of Grundy County Executive Director Eric Scott Fisher said. “Crisis can come in a lot of forms, when times are good and times are bad. Crisis doesn’t necessarily follow trends in the economy or unemployment rates. It can happen to anyone, and when it does, it is good to know that there is help out there to put some of the pieces back together.”
We Care has an on-site food
pantry that is available to Grundy County residents in need once every 30 days.
The food that is provided feeds a family when there are lapses in other resources, or may allow families to pay a utility bill or part of their rent with money they would have spent on food.
We Care has a clothes closet that can be used once every 30 days when people come to use the on site food pantry.
We Care’s goal is to provide clothing to families to save money and stretch their budget in other areas, or for those in need of clothing for interviews or new jobs.
Other programs offered includes homeless prevention, The Salvation Army Red Kettle, utility assistance and Pathway of Hope.
We Care is a local nonprofit agency that provides emergency assistance to Grundy County residents in the form of food, clothing,rent, utility and prescription assistance.
