Do you know someone that could use a little boost of encouragement and support? A single parent? A friend seeking a job? A neighbor needing help? A loved one lacking hope? C.A.R.E.S. is a free program offered by the Orange County YMCA ready to provide everyone with that much needed boost. The Bible teaches that people to not only "love God" but "love their neighbor", which is what the C.A.R.E.S. program is all about.
