When No One Else is there SouthSide Cares

SouthSide Cares



SouthSide Cares is a non-profit organization formed in 2007 by a group of south side, Des Moines, IA residents to help those families afflicted by cancer and other chronic medical issues. Our organization has raised thousands of dollars to help those in need. Our annual benefits, tournaments and other events help us help those that need it most. Find out how you can contribute to someone in need through donations of money and time.

Our Mission

SouthSide Cares exists by the grace of God to benefit and inspire everyone it touches. Our organization is simple, solid and timeless…making a difference in the community through helping individuals and families facing hardships and emergencies by coordinating community fundraisers, auctions and raffles.

Hardships do not discriminate, which is why our year-round benefits get so much attention. Devote an evening to attend one of our meetings and see first-hand the families we help daily.
