The Caring Connection is a not-for-profit organization that provides direct delivery of basic human services, as well as referral to, and coordination with, other programs and agencies. Our organization administers a human resource system that ensures effective, timely, impartial, and non-judgmental service to individuals who may not be receiving services from traditional or existing human service organizations.
A Brief History
For several years, churches and social organization throughout Washington County had recognized the need to organize the emergency assistance given to families in need of basic human servicers.
In early 1991, led by the initiative of the Greater Marietta Ministerial Association, a task force of citizens was formed with this purpose in mind.
With a volunteer Director and office space and furniture donated by the American Red Cross, telephone referral and coordination services began in May, 1992.
In February, 1994, with necessary funding acquired and procedures established, The Caring Connection opened its doors to assist citizens of Washington County.
Caring Connection is the only authorized Neighbor To Neighbor program in Washington County.
