Testimonials

I attended Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday partial loss only session. Each of the meetings I learned something very useful by your presentation and by the interaction from other attendees. Your looking out for our welfare is a blessing and God sent. You already know that what we are going through is harder than any of us realize since you have experienced this yourselves and helped in many catastrophes. Your looking out for our welfare is a blessing and God sent. I want to personally thank you and CARe for what you do. Your heartfelt compassion and teaching what matters to people that have been in harms way is a cause that touches many and gives hope in a world that is so full of anything but care and compassion.
