Irving Cares
November 8, 2012

If you're looking for a non-profit organization that has great leadership, transparency, uses financial and other resources very efficiently, and holds itself accountable by reporting key metrics, then Irving Cares is it! Irving Cares provides Irving residents with temporary assistance and training to promote self-sufficency. They are a small organization that does great things! In addition to the food pantry, they provide rent and utility assistance, employment services, and patient transportation. For clients that receive rent or mortgage assistance, it's not just a one-month fix. To truly help clients and use donor funds wisely, they want at least 85% of clients to not be evicted within 90 days. They're exceeding that objective at 94%. Check out their website or stop by Irving Cares and see first hand how they help the Irving community.
