We Care Hall County
The purpose of WeCare is to identify children in need and at risk who might not qualify or will not apply for conventional public assistance or financial aid. Once identified, we will assist these children and their families through non-conventional methods in order to preserve their dignity and pride. All applicants are screened through a service to ensure duplications are eliminated, while not 100% effective, our last check indicated that less than 2% were not identified. We pledge that all monies collected will be utilized solely for this purpose.
Over 40 years ago, We Care began trying to address the needs of Gainesville and Hall County school children whose families did not qualify, or were too proud to accept, public assistance.
We are proud to help the families of those who are desperately attempting to help themselves. We rely on our thorough sign up process and on our school counselors and educators expertise to follow the guideline and criteria our Board set for those who do NOT receive any other assistance.
Each year we provide Christmas for hundreds of Hall County students as well as providing items throughout the year, ranging from glasses, hearing aids, and medicines to warm coats and clothing.
