Every day, through World Cares Centers programs, we train and protect Ready Responders including front line responders, firefighters, EMTs, nurses, doctors, and disaster volunteers who are helping in many ways including delivering meals and medication to home-bound seniors.

The individuals we train and support view themselves as Ready Responders, not victims, able to prevent everyday accidents and react as educated and skilled Ready Responders when disasters occur.  Together we are building resiliency by ensuring all facets of communities are prepared to respond to disasters together to mitigate their inherent risks, thereby reducing human and economic loss and suffering.

World Cares Center is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions to the World Cares Center are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. World Cares Center’ tax identification number is 41-202-4802.

Immediate Disaster Response 

From Hurricanes to the war in Ukraine, World Cares Center is responding in support of our local partners by training disaster volunteers, working with local leaders to set up coordination centers and providing PPE, clean up supplies and critical resources.

COVID-19 Response:

For two decades World Cares Center has responded to disasters in the U.S. and all over the world, and we are now on the front lines combating the COVID-19 crisis in our own backyard, with a surge in demand for our support.

Here is what we are doing:

  • Distributing N95 respirators, coveralls, and gloves from our own supplies to those on the front lines including first responders, healthcare workers, and volunteers going door to door to feed home-bound seniors.
  • Training service providers in critical situations including service workers active in elder care, home health care aids, janitors, and scores of others who need immediate support in different communities.  Online courses are offered free of charge at www.disastervolunteerismacademy.org
  • Partnering with local community leaders to educate their constituents and marginalized populations who are distrustful of government and run the risk of ignoring vital health and safety messages thereby dramatically reduced exposure and risk
  • Translating information about the COVID-19 from NIH, NIEHS, and Rutgers University NY/NJ Hazardous Waste Workers Consortium into languages and ways people understand. We are grateful for your support for what we do every day, and especially now in our critical time of need

In addition to monetary donations, WCC is collecting and redistributing donated items to front-line COVID-19 Ready Responders. We urgently need:

  • NIOSH-approved N-95 respirators
  • Surgical Masks
  • Nitril gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Vented goggles
  • Safety Glasses
  • Coverall Tyvek suits
