Social Worker / Community Volunteer

Board Chair

"I believe that when a child experiences trauma they deserve excellent resources, to address, heal, and move beyond those concerns. Children are one of the most important aspects of a community; they are our joy, a motivation to make the world a better and safer place, and they are our future. I am grateful to The CARE House team for taking care of our community’s children with compassion and excellence."

"I believe it is our duty as a community to protect those who cannot protect themselves and to advocate for the vulnerable. As a board member, I support the mission of The Care House in treating and healing these children. It is my passion to bring awareness to our community about the services available and to expand our outreach. I am blessed to be a small part of this organization in protecting the future of this world, our precious children."

"It's nor fair for kids, who really don't yet understand the world around them to have to navigate the process of healing from trauma without a CAC. It's tragic that abuse exists in any form and victims deserve a safe place to heal."

The CARE House is a huge asset for the Pee Dee.  As a father of three, I want to do my part to help make sure that not only my kids are safe, and would have a place to find help if anything where to happen to them, but that the same service is available for ALL children.”
