Mack's Place to Call Home
A local psychologist, Dr. C., was working with a patient who was in desperate need of help. Mack, a 69-year-old man, struggled with memory issues and was living in his car in a local parking lot for several months. As a result, he had no place to shower, no food, and was unable to keep track of his medications. Dr. C. had difficulty finding the best way to help Mack and met with little success when trying to contact organizations and identify resources for him. She was desperate and out of options when she reached out to the Collier Resource Center. 

CRC program coordinator Marioly took over from that point. She contacted Mack and began the intake procedure to assess his situation and identify his exact needs. In conjunction with the psychologist, CRC reached out to the Hunger and Homeless Coalition of Collier County. After weeks of outreach, planning, and coordination with the Hunger and Homeless Coalition, a secure place was found for Mack, where he is now residing. 

Recently, Dr C. told Marioly, “I was waiting for a miracle like this to happen. I tried everything I could think of to help Mack. Thank you for guiding me in the right direction and connecting me with the right people.”
An angel's food drop-off serendipitously helped a struggling mom later that same day.

CRC is proud to serve more Collier residents
in need because of donors like you!
In 2020, The Moorings Park Foundation generously granted $25,000 to CRC with the specific goal of connecting CRC with more Collier residents in need. We knew there were so many more people who would benefit from our services and we wanted to reach them.
The grant, which was earmarked specifically for client outreach, enabled us to hire Soukup Strategic Solutions to devise and execute a strategic marketing plan for increasing our visibility among those in need.  

We are pleased to report a 29% increase in the number of people CRC has assisted in the past six months. We anticipate that number will continue to grow as we continue to implement the marketing outreach strategic plan.
Thank you to our anonymous donor
for a lasting legacy!
We recently received notice that a donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has left the Collier Resource Center in her estate plans! This will allow her to leave a lasting legacy that will benefit so many people in need. If you would like more information about Planned Giving and leaving CRC in your will, please contact Nina at 239-434-2030.

CRC relies on the generosity of community partners like you to fund our work. Please join us in serving this vibrant community by donating generously to the Collier Resource Center. 

We are proud to report that 98 percent of every dollar raised goes toward programs! Thanks to you, CRC is able to find solutions to problems people face every day.
