Our focus is to give help and hope to the homeless, veterans and less fortunate throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities to lead better lives. We accomplish this with random acts of kindness as well as purposeful events. We give love, encouragement, resources and help to those that God has placed in our path.

Under our community tab you will find our main avenues of helping and raising funds. Please check out our blog for recent events and fundraisers. You too can have a CARING HEART!

Please reach out to us through Facebook, email, call or text for help, volunteer and community service opportunities as well as donate goods, services or finances.

I would highly recommend this organization to EVERYONE! Not only do they help the homeless but also anyone in need or down on their luck. I can personally say that the people we help are so appreciative and thankful. Alot of the people Neice Eie has helped come back to pay it forward to others. It is a wonderful feeling to help thy neighbor or a complete stranger. The organizations name says it all Caring Hearts, because every single person that donates has a CARING HEART.

I work for a manufacturing company and seem to accumulate extra clothes often. I love that I now have a place to donate that I know will go to help some people in our local communities that are just looking for someone with a caring, kind heart to spread love and joy. Thank you Niece Eie for providing an outlet and sharing your passion!!

I want to say thank you to Denise for helping my family at Christmas time. I am grateful she was able to assist us. I've heard many stories about how wonderful she is and they are all so true. She has one of the biggest ❤️ I've seen in a person. She goes way out of her way to show others that someone in this world cares for them and she never expects anything in return. I can only hope that one day she will be recognized for all she has done and continues to do. She came through to help my family at the worst time of the year after my son in law lost his job due to transportation trouble and we're very thankful. Thank you Denise from the bottom of our ❤️. You are an angel!!
