13th Anniversary of the 9/11 

On this 13th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the tremendous worldwide out pouring of support, World Cares Center remembers those who perished.

World Cares Center was founded by spontaneous volunteers who band together to help their neighbors and support our rescue workers. We are grateful to the thousands of individuals and groups that came from near and far to aid our city and country.

Today we reflect on those we lost, those that survived and overcame tremendous challenges, and those that emerged to give of themselves selflessly to help our city in its darkest hours. The World does Care and we continue that spirit everyday through our mission and vision forged from our 9/11 experiences.
