CARE Project

Community Action and Relief Experience Project

Originating in the Pacific Northwest, the C.A.R.E. (Community Action Relief Experience) Project is a pilot project from the North Pacific Union Conference Community Services department coordinated out of the Center for Humanitarian Engagement (CHE) at Walla Walla University (WWU).

CARE Project has the vision to increase the involvement of young people in community service through a comprehensive, assessment-based engagement plan, supported by a team of CARE Advocates and resident expert partners.

The application period is currently open for two to three Church-based Adventist Community Services ministries in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana) seeking to increase impact on the ministry and community through a CARE Project.  

After interest applications are reviewed, three programs will be selected to participate in a feasibility study with the end goal of providing a readiness review of the community. This process would involve a weekend visit from a CARE Project team, involving focus groups with church members and community leaders to ensure the community’s readiness for change. Each community can expect growth in individual and corporate engagement through involvement and implementation of a strategic plan created from a period of discovery and assessment.
