Caring Hearts Center

Washington Baptist Association

Our Caring Hearts Center thrift store has a lot to choose from. Proffits from here allow us to help minister to the people of Washington County. 



The Caring Hearts Center opened on December 5, 2005, after the Helping Hands was closed earlier in the year. On May 14, 2007, the Executive Committee of the Washington Baptist Association voted to change the name to “The Paul & Mavis Kendrick Caring Hearts Center” in honor of their lifetime service to the Lord and their love and devotion to all the people of Washington County.

In addition to offering clothes, household items and various other items at a reasonable price, the funds generated from the sale of these items that are above the expenses of running the thrift store are used to help qualified people in Washington County with emergencies, including utilities that are about to be cut off or have already been cut off, and qualified prescriptions.

The Caring Hearts Center closed on June 16, 2009, for renovations and an addition to the building, which resulted in the building being approximately four times the previous size and relocating the front of the building to Jordan Street instead of E. Front Street.

Many years had passed since a vision of building a new, larger building for the Caring Hearts Center first started. We looked into building on the lot next to the Washington Baptist Association, but the lot work and additional costs were beyond our means financially. We looked at the possibility of locating an existing building that would meet our needs, but were unsuccessful. We did all we could do, and then the Lord worked out something we hadn’t even thought of. Isn’t God good! We were offered the lots behind the current location of the Caring Hearts Center at a very reasonable price. We then contacted the owner of the building now housing the Caring Hearts Center about the possibility of purchasing that building. The owner offered that building at a very reasonable price. Therefore, we will now we able to expand at the current location to approximately four times the current size and the front of the building will then be on the main road. We will be having our local mission trip the week of June 22 – 26, 2009, to add on the current building. Local volunteers will be doing the construction, and anyone desiring to help is welcomed to contact the Washington Baptist Association for additional information. Tax-deductible donations to the Building Fund are also welcomed.

When the new addition is completed, we expect our sales to increase, and thus our ability to help more people.

We wish to thank all the people of Washington County for their generous

tax-deductible donation of goods to the Caring Hearts Center.
