The Mission of the Caregiving Network (CgN) is to provide effective assistance and outreach to people lacking basic resources by responding with financial, material, and personal resources made available through contributions made by area churches, individuals, businesses and foundations. CgN provides resources in order to instill hope as those served move toward financial independence. CgN, through staff and volunteers, also encourages spiritual maturity in its clientele, by sharing the message of God’s plan for salvation and purpose for His people while motivating a desire for regular attendance in a local, Christ-centered church.
