COVID-19 and Housing Donations
To best manage our housing donations in the midst of COVID-19 spread, The Carying Place has decided to temporarily postpone acceptance of all housing item donations. We appreciate your support and will update this policy through our website and social media ASAP. Thank you!
Benefit Auction Postponed
In light of recent COVID-19 concerns, we wanted to make everyone aware that our Annual Benefit Auction, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 25th, has been postponed. We have made this difficult decision to reschedule for the safety of all sponsors and attendees and to follow the CDC’s strong recommendation to avoid gatherings of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks. The new event date is Friday, August 21st at 6pm – Prestonwood Country Club. We will gladly honor all current sponsor and event ticket purchases for the new date. We will greatly miss seeing our incredible community come together in April but look forward to re-creating this magic on August 21st. Further details to come as we prepare for our new date. Thank you and please be safe out, all!
Welcome to The Carying Place
The Carying Place teaches homeless, working families with children, life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs.
Our goal is to help homeless, working families achieve independent living with the help of volunteer Support Partners. Our Support Partners and staff provide weekly guidance in managing personal finances, seeking permanent affordable housing, and maintaining employment – breaking the cycle of poverty families have experienced.
Over a 16-week period, these families are taught the skills required for self-sufficiency through mandatory Thursday evening meetings with their Support Partners.

I cannot believe how this program saved me and my family. The day we got the call that we were accepted is one of the happiest days of my life especially after having to live with family members who no longer had space for us. I will never forget hearing that we had the chance to finally get our lives back. My children now feel protected, have their own beds and they love the program. I am so grateful for The Carying Place. THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CHANGE OUR LIVES!
