As We Care continues to address the impact of a changed world on the needs and challenges facing our community’s most vulnerable families, we always remember that our ability to do so is based on the generosity of extraordinary individuals like you. 

Thank you for enabling We Care to continue providing our safety-net resources to at-risk young children (and their families). We remain dedicated to using your resources efficiently, effectively, and for the reason that matters most to you – creating life-changing moments for at-risk children. Your support today positively impacts these children in ways that will last a lifetime. We are deeply grateful.
