Since our inception in 2004, we have remained dedicated to the principles of a Grassroots Organizing:


     1:  0% of our leadership team  is compensated for their work


     2:  Local residents and community members fuel the

        organization by taking responsibility for their communities

        and the children of the community.

     3:  We are funded 100% from public contributions and grants.

     4:  Our broad goal are squarely focused on shaping


Spurring change at the local levels.


The Campaign for Accessibility of Recreational and Educational Resources (CARE) involves targeted services to resident youth who reside with-in a three mile radius of the services area. The goal of the campaign is to bring resources to those residents in most need.  100% of funds go directly to the youth services which include tutoring, workshops, seminars, day and summer camp.


While we target these zones all children residing in Wake County are welcomed to benefit from our membership and services.
