We had an opportunity to visit with the busy and enthusiastic team at CARE Partnership in Mesa, AZ. It was certainly one of the most impressive organizations we’ve come across on this journey. In addition to providing medical and dental services, there was also a community garden, an after school program, and even a Santa program. It can not be overstated how much CARE does to serve the Mesa community. During our time at CARE we helped plant vegetables, finger painted with school kids, and sorted items for re-sale.
