Inspirational Quotes

... all of a sudden you realize how much you lost. Everything was gone and until I see it coming back, I didn't really realize the loss that we had had, it was 40 years of memories that are gone, 40 years of some things we'll never get back again.

Testimonials

...had it not been for CARe's workshops, we shudder to think what the end result would have been for us in dealing with the aftermath of the fire and particularly the insurance company....the kindness and GENUINE "CARing" (!), their incredible bank of knowledge, and consistent support is almost beyond comprehension. We hope to be able to pass this same caring and "know-how" on to future victims (God forbid) when the need arises.
