Mission Statement

Our mission in to help our neighbors in the Edgewater community by providing food, clothing and referral services to those in need.

We do this through on-site food distribution, deliveries to the homebound, a free clothes closet and a case management program to help clients connect with other services they may require.

Description

Care for Real was established in 1970 by members Rev. William Johnson of the Episcopal Church of the Atonement, Rabbi Herman Schaalman of Emmanuel Congregation and other members of the Edgewater Clerical Rabbinical Association. This orgnization, which is now known as the Edgewater Community Religious Association (ECRA), wanted to provide emergency help victims of fires in "Arson Alley", the Kenmore-Winthrop corridor between Foster and Devon. It was intended to be a short-term solution to a specific problem. However, it soon became clear that there was a need in Edgewater for an ongoing safety net for neighbors in need. Today Care for Real is the safety net for the entire Edgewater community.
