Everything you need to know about CARES


Our CARES Affiliate network in 58 U.S. cities recruits caring volunteers and connects them to where they are urgently needed: in schools, local youth-serving organizations including our own, and detention centers and reentry programs located in communities that are disrupted by poverty. In addition, our large group-mentoring programs, alive in seven cities and which we are preparing for national replication and rollout, focus on the emotional, social, academic and professional development of our children and the wellness of the adults who mentor and parent them.
