We are a non-profit organization that empowers communities to end homelessness through community planning, program data, supportive housing, and awareness-building.
CARES will lead grant-funded projects that align with our core mission. These special projects must have the potential to benefit those living in poverty and/or to aid homeless service providers in our local communities. All proposed projects are reviewed by the CARES board and contingent upon approval.
