Become a Candle in the Window

Everything you need to know about CARES



An undertaking informed by our nation’s history of Black and White abolitionists who risked their lives by placing a lit candle in their window so that those escaping along the Underground Railroad would know they had found safe harbor, the campaign will support the replication of our Rising program.

The Rising—the only national effort created to disrupt the trauma, multiple harms and dream-crushing loss of hope borne of poverty—is safe harbor for our children. We know because our young ones tell us so, again and again. You can help bring our life-transforming mentoring program to more children more swiftly by becoming a campaign conductor and donating between $10 - 100.
