MEET CARES.

CARES ADVOCATES AT A GLANCE

As a grassroots organization, CARES commits itself to the empowerment of both students and parents in the larger Binghamton region. We participate in lobbying sure, but our real work is directly with parents and teachers and students, developing healthy relationships built on trust and understanding. We are pushing together for higher standards of justice for our children.
