914Cares Programs are designed to help reduce financial stress, meet practical needs, and foster respect. Our success allows our neighbors in need to move forward.

Designed to meet evolving needs

People who struggle with financial security are routinely forced to make impossible choices between paying rent, utilities, and medical bills vs. purchasing essential supplies like clothing, diapers, and period products. Lack of these resources creates barriers to employment, education, childcare access, and causes mental and physical distress.

The majority of the necessities of daily living we provide are not covered by any public benefit programs.

Our focus on pragmatic, tangible assistance is matched by our attentiveness to human dignity and respect for those we serve: all items we provide are of good quality, carefully selected with the recipient in mind.


Clothing+ provides each recipient with a Bag of Love containing a week’s worth of clothing and bonus items such as books, toys, hygiene products, and period products.
