On December 21, 2017, The Carroll County Times reported on the operations of Caring Communities Inc., a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Sykesville woman who stole thousands from nonprofit sentenced to serve 18 months." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Carroll County Times article.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
