Eslene Richmond-Shockley founded Caring For Others in 2001 after a health scare forced her to reconsider the meaning of her life, and focus on helping others. She began by renting a portion of a warehouse for three months at the cost of $1. Since its humble beginnings, Caring For Others has grown to purchase the building and expand. In April, she purchased an additional 50,000 square foot facility and expanded Caring For Others’ daily giving to over 80,000 pounds of food supporting over 500 families. Caring For Others now is a multimillion dollar nonprofit and just received funding from the State of Georgia through the Division of Children and Families to continue the work she is doing in the community.
These women are leading the way in their fields, and changing the world. It is our honor at Rhythm to be able to represent them and promote their works.
