Dorcas Ministries has served our community since 1968, providing food and financial assistance for rent, utilities, tuition, childcare, medical bills and other expenses, along with job-readiness training.  We have a reputation for treating people with compassion and dignity, and serve over 25,000 people in Cary and Morrisville each year, providing help when they need it.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many of our neighbors have been thrown into uncertainty and crisis.  The Dorcas Ministries food pantry, one of the busiest in North Carolina, saw early evidence of what was coming when requests for food doubled.  And, while we typically provide about $40,000 a month in rent subsidies to hundreds of area renters, that has also skyrocketed. We anticipate this level of need to continue well into next year.  Your donation today will help stabilize our struggling neighbors.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dorcas Ministries has changed our annual Thanksgiving Breakfast to a virtual event.  This “event” is a month-long fundraiser that will be highlighted by our Day of Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 19, 2020.  We are excited and hopeful that during a pandemic, we can still ‘gather’ and support our neighbors who need our help.

Donate online by clicking the button above or mail in a check (memo: Thanksgiving) to Dorcas Ministries, 187 High House Road, Cary, NC 27511.  If you are interested in setting up a recurring gift, please do that directly through our website:
