Caring Children Clothing Children, Inc.
Founded in 1997, the mission of Caring Children Clothing Children, Inc. is to provide clothing, new socks, underwear and shoes, as well as reading intervention and literacy materials, at no cost to children in need in Martin County. The vision is to expand our capacity and for the children we serve to have increased self esteem, to feel better about school and have increased reading skills. Located in Martin County, the 4Cs (Caring Children Clothing Children, Inc.) was founded in 1997 by local volunteers with the purpose of distributing free, “gently used” clothing to Martin County children who have been qualified as living at or below the poverty level. Seventeen years later, there are 65 social service agencies sending families to our store located in Stuart. The store has a department store appearance, and the families can shop with dignity. The items they select are theirs to take at no charge whatsoever.
