World Cares Center would like to thank everyone who made the 13th Annual Iron Skillet Cook-Off a huge success. Congratulations to our winners!


World Cares Center is supporting a request by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to pilot a new training program designed to educate and empower disaster supervisors. The Supervisor program is designed to prepare supervisors to:

Recognize the signs and symptoms of disaster work related stress.

Understand the unique role of the supervisor in balancing health, safety, resilience, and productivity.

Build their own and their team’s resilience by demonstrating stress reduction and support skills.

Obtain support through employer/organization and community resources.

Provide leadership and support to the people they supervise.

Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts:

As of June 2014 World Cares Center has trained over 18,833 volunteers (of which 4,374 are youths and 838 are Seniors). We also delivered over 45,000 emergency supplies & reclaimed the homes of more than 1,400 New Yorkers!

World Cares Center operates Volunteer Coordination and Resiliency Centers (VCRCs) on Staten Island, Far Rockaways, Queens and Brooklyn. These sites are supported by our headquarters team located in Midtown Manhattan where we serve all five boroughs and beyond. Please contact us to volunteer or to request help.


Training Everyday:

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. Please Email training@worldcares.org or call us for our training schedule or request training.


A Quick Video About Us:

World Cares Center (WCC) mission is to empower communities and their neighbors through disaster response training, support and coordination. By preparing the community to respond together, we alleviate suffering in marginalized populations while reducing the injuries, deaths, and harmful elements of emergency situations. 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.
