Assisting Families in Need
The mission of Naperville CARES is to help local families in financial crisis meet their essential needs by providing emergency financial support and resources.
"I just wanted to thank you for helping me and my family during our time of need. With the rent paid I have been able to throw myself into my job search and I will be staring a new job in December. I wanted you all to know how much your kindness, compassion and financial help means to us! The work you all are doing makes an important difference in people's lives. Thank you for being there."
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our family with the security deposit so that we could rent an apartment after losing our house. We are grateful for your generosity and for expediting our request. Each volunteer I spoke with was warm and gracious and treated me with respect. That means so much in a difficult time. We have an opportunity for a fresh start and we thank you for helping make that come true. Our hope is to get to a place where we can help others in need the way Naperville CARES helped us!"
