We CARE is a community coalition based in Madison County, Ohio.  We CARE was formed in 2018 when two community coalitions (with similar missions and many of the same volunteers) merged in an effort to accomplish more together.  Read all about that merger here.  Although the entire county is our target for outreach programs, we specifically try to reach those who are using drugs or other substances and those who are going through depression or have a need for help with their mental health.  In Madison County, we've decided to GO FAR by GOING TOGETHER.

Community Conversations (Fall 2021!)
Have you heard?  We CARE is coming to YOUR community this Spring!  We CARE is hosting four community conversations (Mount Sterling, Plain City, London, and West Jefferson) centered around substance use prevention, suicide prevention, treatment, and recovery.  Join us and make your voice heard!  Click or tap here to read more about the conversations including locations and times.
