Care On The Square

A christian homeless ministry

The need is greater than ever, and close to home...

One out of every three Clevelanders lives in poverty, making Cleveland one of the poorest large cities in the country. Recent surveys show that the poverty rate in Cleveland has increased to 34%, ranking it third behind Detroit, MI and San Bernardino, CA.  

This has resulted in many people being homeless.  They are struggling to survive without food, shelter and appropriate clothing.  Most of them feel they have nowhere to turn and no way out. Amazingly, this is not a description of a far away country; it is right here in our own backyard.

At the same time, the income gap between the "haves" and the "have nots" has widened to record levels.  Many of us recognize the blessings we have been given and want to help.   Care on the Square is a local Christian mission that exists to minister to those living on the streets of our local community.  We provide food and clothing while offering encouragement and hope based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
