Care is one of the most revered social gifts that we can give others. To give care means to comfort another. To give someone peace of mind. A peace that allows someone to close his or her eyes and rest, knowing that when they awaken, they will not be alone. That they are loved. Safe. And worthy.
Care doesn’t necessarily mean someone will be cured. Care can restore a relationship, but to reduce care to a cure means that care is reduced to an outcome. Care is a commitment to another human being despite or in spite of what will happen.
Care is a way of being in the world that involves acts of service, but it begins way before the acts of service can be seen by others and lingers long after the task is done. Deep care can’t be easily observed nor easily communicated. It imprints itself on you. It changes you. And it changes others.
Just as it takes a multi-disciplinary team to do the work of Partner's Children's Advocacy Center, and Child and Family Team Coordination to bring family members together for mental health and substance use disorders counseling, therapy and healing, it takes a team to prevent, interrupt and repair cycles of abuse and neglect within families. It takes a team to care. You become a part of our team when you give to Partners Care in support of our essential family services with your monthly tax-deductible donation.
Monthly donations reduce costs and help save even more lives.
A small gift each month helps Partners spend more money on saving families and less on administrative costs. It is an easy and affordable way for individuals to make their support go further and save even more lives. For as little as $8.33 a month, you can care for a family through: individual, group, and family counseling; child abuse prevention; and parent education.
