About Caring Hands

Caring Hands is a network of Christian Churches and community partners that mobilizes eastern Polk County for compassionate service toward our neighbors.


​Caring Hands carries out its ministry according to our core values:

  • Everyone Matters. (Luke 15:3-7)

    • Jesus models for us relentless love without labels or borders.  We desire to give that same kind of love to every person we encounter.

  • Everyone has a part to play. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

    • God gives everyone gifts to use for serving others and we are better when we work together.  We desire to mobilize as many community members as possible to serve their neighbors.

  • It’s all about Jesus. (John 6:35)

    • Jesus is the reason Caring Hands exists.  Jesus is the hope for the hurting, the bread of life for the hungry, and our motive in serving.  We desire to point people to Jesus in all that we do.

Caring Hands is the shared ministry of a network of partner churches and organizations.  It is led by an Executive Director and a Board.  Click to learn more about our staff, board, or partners
