Why We Started Brothers Who Care (formerly Brothers United Who Dare To Care) formed in 1996 to help black men take responsibility for their lives, their families and their community.
What We Believe At Brothers Who Care we believe everyone can be a voice in the community and that everyone can make a contribution to society. What We Do Our mission is to promote the Culture, Health and Success of the community. We encourage others to speak up for themselves and stand with them as an advocate to help resolve their issues. We work to better the community through our community news publication “Speak Up”, our various outreach activities and our support services that promote self-sufficiency and cultural pride. Most of our outreach is free, including the free news publication as well as the free computer training and free computers we give away in our volunteer exchange program. We have a cultural resource library with numerous books about blacks and black heritage in our Doleman Black Heritage Library.The library is expanding to include multicultural heritage. We have a computer lab with high-speed Internet access. Everyone is invited to share what we have available and your contributions are accepted. Most of our programs are targeted for low-income to moderate-income communities and small business owners. We help the youth of our community with our partnerships with youth organizations. We are also involved in programs addressing health disparities. We distribute a monthly community news publication.
What You Can Do We invite anyone of good standing to volunteer to serve our community. You may donate time, money, books, videos, magazines, historic documents, computers, printers and computer accessories to our program.
