CARE lost a very dedicated and beloved member of our organization on October 27th with the passing of Christine Beems. She has struggled for sometime with health issues but her contributions to the organization made main changes. She was the editor of Help Yourself, the resource directory. She was actively engaged in advocacy for the formally incarcerated. She was a major factor in publicizing the organization. She was a professional writer, photographer and publisher who used her talents to advance the cause and case for criminal justice reform. We will all miss her greatly.
On April 26, 2013 the Clinton School of Public Service in coordination with Lewis-Burnett Employment Finders hosted a community conversation to present the findings of the practicum team. For the white paper, please click here!
The latest issue of "Help Yourself" is available in library and community centers.
