CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in your community to your attention. Caseworkers uncover the needs. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond. Please continue to check for needs here as the days unfold, as many families may be struggling to meet the needs of their children.
We are also needing volunteers to help with grief care, online tutoring for refugee children, support for medical care workers and unemployment relief/rent assistance. If you are interested in helping in any of these areas, please contact any of our ministers to see where you can plug in.
