Our Purpose

Hardin County Jesus Cares is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to help families achieve stability and overcome crises by supporting them in their transition period. We understand that everyone needs a little help sometimes and our nonprofit organization was founded to combine local church and community resources to better serve families in Hardin County experiencing a financial crisis. We are primarily staffed by volunteers and serve as a helping hand up, funded by monetary contributions and proceeds from donated items sold in our thrift store.

Our Future

As Hardin County grows through the years, the need for assistance grows with it. Our dream is to create a community where everyone lives well, and families are able to overcome crises through community-wide support. We hope to continue providing emergency services for families in need and to expand those services in the future to better serve our community. When you donate to or shop in our thrift store, you help us to provide more assistance for more local families and make Hardin County a better place for families in need.
