We Care Community Services has been serving Rhea County for over 30 years, helping over 10,000 people annually.  It continues to be our mission to do everything we can to serve the needs in our community.  In the past year, we have assisted homeless families with children through our Safe Haven Light Home in Spring City and individuals and couples in our Micro Home in Dayton.  All of this is made possible through your support and participation in this Golf Tournament.  Since our last event, we have helped 59 individuals who stayed 2,798 nights in our shelters.  This year, in addition to our homeless programs, a portion of the money raised will go to benefit our Food Assistance Program in our Food Pantry.  It is through events like this that we are able to continue serving our people right here at home.

Update: Second Micro House October 14, 2015 at 09:41AM

The Micro House's are our way of providing the homeless with temporary shelter, and giving them a new lease on life.  These transitional houses are small but functional, giving people a place to stay while getting back on their feet. 

The second Micro House is on its way to being finished, but its progress has come to a halt.  We need at this point $8,000 to $10,000 to finish this home.  Giving funds, or volunteering your time, are ways you can help complete this project.  We are also in need of materials such as:  insulation, drywall, or items to help finish the inside of the house. 

It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...

The Second Micro House is Underway August 11, 2015 at 09:36AM

A few months ago we shared with you that the RCHS Career and Technology Education Department was building a second micro house for the Transitional Housing Project.  This is an update on the progress of this micro house.  It has been brought and set up in front of the first micro house.  The foundation is set and it's looking good.  The house is coming right along.  If you would like to help with this project contact Alton at 423-775-4333 or 423-280-1380 for more information.
