CarePortal: The Heart of Prevention
All across our community there are children and families facing incredible challenges by no
fault of their own. We believe that the right resource at the right time can not only meet their
tangible needs, but also open a door of hope and transformation.
The needs featured on CarePortal are vetted by child welfare professionals who know the
struggles of the families. The top five most frequently requested needs on CarePortal are:
- beds and cribs,
- living room furniture,
- car seats, and
- seasonal items.
We believe as a community, when we meet the right need at the right time, we can engage
families in meaningful relationships, and we will see more children stay safely at home in
their own communities, and see fewer children removed from their homes and entering the
foster care system.
We can help prevent abuse and neglect this by strengthening families in our community and
building a relationship with them before a crisis occurs.
