Additional Information:

The CARE Fund is intended to assist area professionals in meeting the needs of at risk children with whom they work with on a regular basis. It is not intended to replace health insurance benefits, provide for adults or meet basic needs which can be fulfilled by other St. Clair County agencies, churches or civic groups. The St. Clair County Child Abuse/Neglect Council may assist applicants in locating other more appropriate resources when indicated. When funds for the designated year are utilized they will not be replaced until the beginning of the next fiscal year. The Council wishes to provide an easily accessed fund which will address a child's self esteem/self enhancement issues in support of our belief that...
