Mission Statement

Marion Cares is a faith-based non profit agency in Marion, Iowa serving students and families in the Linn-Mar and Marion Independent school districts. Our services address academics, family needs, poverty, social needs, and spiritual needs.

Description

We serve in Marion neighborhoods. No transportation needed.

We rely on volunteers above staff.

We mainly partner with local churches, but we also partner with businesses, foundations, individuals, non-profit organizations, schools, and service clubs.

In 2007, three Christian business men gathered for coffee to ponder how the children of the Azure Apartments might be helped. One week later, 14 community leaders joined forces to provide academic and spiritual support. Filled backpacks were distributed, homework help created, and TxT Time began within two months.

By the summer of 2010 programs began in four locations before or after FLY (Feeding Lunch to Youth), 410 backpacks were distributed and 64 families adopted for Christmas. Eleven congregations joined forces to passionately serve Christ for children.

Today over 20 congregations send volunteers, give financially and provide in-kind donations (school supplies, bicycles, winter clothing needs and Christmas gifts). Many businesses, individuals, foundations, and service clubs impact children and families by giving financially and providing in-kind donations.
