CARE House Volunteers are special people who give the precious gift of time to make a difference in the life of a child. Without the thousands of hours contributed each year by its volunteers, far fewer children and families would be served. There are many volunteer opportunities at CARE House of Oakland County.

There are countless stories of the children who have come to CARE House for hope and healing. These are stories of children who have found a safe place where their voices can be heard and believed. They are stories of courage overcoming fear, of pride overcoming shame. Each story is as unique as each child. Each journey has its own path.

A BIG CARE House “Thank You” to the Counting Crows and Nicole Duritz, the Coordinator of their Community Outreach Project.  This amazing community outreach effort is quite simple:  The band (Counting Crows) invited CARE House as a community-based, non-profit, to distribute information at their concerts at the Meadow Brook Music Theater on Thursday, July 4th.  A truly amazing way to support on mission and talk first hand with thousands of people attending the concert!

This project was initiated in 1996 as an effort to recognize organizations working on behalf on their communities.  In 2008 the band expanded the efforts and launched the GreyBird Foundation.  The expansion will enable the Counting Crows to work with more bands, organizations and bring more attention to the amazing work of community-based organizations.

The CARE House Team included Executive Director, Carol Furlong, Mike Furlong and Shawn Ciavattone who distributed information about services and programs, educational information, materials on volunteer opportunities.  The concert provided a wonderful opportunity to talk to the community directly about the CARE Mission and the services we provide to the victim of child abuse and neglect.

Counting Crows Outreach 2

This project is now over fourteen years old and the Counting Crows have had many wonderful successes during the tour in 2013.  They provide CARE House a wonderful opportunity engage a large audience, and…we really enjoyed the music!
