Benefits & Services

"The CARE program provided me with a sense of belonging and was like a second family to me. It was nice to have established friendships with a group of individuals who were in similar situations as I; we all understood first-hand the struggles that came along with being at a socio-economic disadvantage and also single parents. Thanks to support programs such as CARE, I graduated with an AA-T in Communication Studies."
