Carlisle C.A.R.E.S. has been serving the Cumberland County community since 2004. C.A.R.E.S. began as a mission through Carlisle United Methodist Church (then Grace United Methodist Church). After sheltering a few men for a night, members of the church and the community realized there was a much bigger issue that needed to be addressed. Initially, C.A.R.E.S. housed three of four homeless individuals during the harshest winter months through a network of three churches. Eventually, as support grew, C.A.R.E.S. was able to offer shelter year round to as many as 60 guests each night. Carlisle C.A.R.E.S. is located at 50 West Penn Street, in Carlisle, PA.
