We continue with long-term recovery efforts in New Jersey and we respond to Hurricane Sandy. Please check the “What We Do” section of our website for ongoing New Jersey relief initiatives.
World Cares Center (WCC) alleviates suffering in marginalized populations while reducing the injuries, deaths, and harmful elements of emergency situations.
WCC teaches youth, seniors, and citizens to act as effective ready responders, trains local and faith-based leaders to emerge as disaster managers, and works with emergency managers to formulate contingency plans and coordinate community-wide response efforts.
Resulting from these initiatives are strong, resilient communities capable of helping each other safely during crisis and disaster response, as well as confident individuals who possess the tools to keep themselves and their family safe by reducing the risks of hazards around them.
