Community Assistance and Resource Effort (CARE) Task Force will represent SVC-CAMFT's commitment to serving our community by providing timely assistance and resources for tragedies, crises of social injustice, or natural disasters affecting those directly and indirectly in the greater Sacramento area. CARE will be a resource and a platform to help professionals receive support, education, training and resources. It will also serve as a platform for connecting members and non-members. The primary objective of CARE is to mobilize a therapeutic response for those affected by the impact of traumatic events. Oversight of the Task Force will reside with the Executive Committee of the SVC-CAMFT board.
