Our History

We Care was founded in 1960 by parents of children with severe developmental disabilities. The founders sought to establish an organization that would enable their children to receive a range of needed services within their own community. At the time, no such agency existed.  In 1985, we expanded our program to provide mental health services for children with social, emotional, and behavior issues due to abuse, neglect, and family violence.  In 2002, we collaboratively developed a preschool consultation program to provide early screening and identification of preschool children who exhibit behaviors indicating developmental or mental health issues that would significantly interfere with their school success.
