Community Aid and Resourceshttp://www.caresc.org
Our organization consists of volunteers devoted to serving and improving the lives of underprivileged individuals in the Santa Cruz county by tending to the health and wellness of community members. We focus on these dynamic issues with the intent of establishing a bottom line of compassion, human decency, and respect in Santa Cruz. We accomplish this by organizing free clinics at local venues. Our full-scale clinics offer consultations with health professionals, foot washing, haircuts, free hygiene products, and food/water. We also conduct small-scale clinics which are more versatile and act as a mobile clinic, allowing us to provide haircuts, foot washing, and hygiene distribution more often. We are actively looking to include passionate students in our organization. If you want to help us organize, plan, and communicate then please come to our next meeting! Extra-special thanks to Santa Cruz AIDS Project, Santa Cruz Homeless Services Center, Global Bridges, Kresge College, and the UCSC Health Center for their ongoing support.
