About Fayette Cares
Since 1986, Fayette Cares has served the community by empowering those in need with hope, independence and lasting solutions. The organization began by providing services to help break the cycle of poverty. Starting with a food pantry, clothing store and classes to build life skills, Fayette Cares focused on offering services that would empower clients to overcome their circumstances, nurture their skills and build a life beyond poverty. The agency has since grown to include comprehensive and holistic services to help homeless families become self-sufficient, aid those trapped in violent homes to find their way out, and support clients in financial crisis as they rebuild on solid ground.
