People Who Care Network
A 21st century village coming together to support America’s children.
About People Who Care
The People Who Care Network is grounded in a simple truth: Basic human needs must be met before learning can begin.
People Who Care is a national network of individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and CBOs that focus on meeting the basic needs of underprivileged children by providing food, clothing, housing, and medical and legal services. By alleviating those concerns, children are then able to re-engage in their learning environments and take the steps toward a successful future.
People Who Care operates at the local level to support students across the country enrolled in ReCapturing the Vision programs. Each program site is assigned an Advocate who works in tandem with Instructors to nominate individuals, families, organizations, and/or initiatives for a Care Connection. If approved, RTV staff work diligently to produce a Care Connection Match through its People Who Care Network within 30 days. If no Match exists in the Network, RTV will create one within 60 days and/or provide funds to subsidize the request.
Requests for Care Connections are reviewed monthly. Requests vary from individual services and non-capital equipment to project sponsorship. All approved Care Connection requests are filled within 90 Days.
How to Help
People Who Care is a relationship-driven network operating on a concentric model of change. By helping a small circle of individuals, organizations and initiatives at the local level, RTV hopes to saturate schools, families and communities with supportive structures to promote students’ success.
Anyone can be part of the People Who Care network. All you need to do is fill out a simple online Pledge form describing the service, product, or funding amount you would like to pledge to the Network. No Pledge is too big or too small.
Once you make a Pledge to the People Who Care Network you will receive an electronic seal and certificate that can be displayed on your web site and in your office or home.
When a Care Connection Match is made, you will receive a letter advising you of the Match. After the request has been filled, you will receive a Donation Letter from ReCapturing the Vision for tax filing purposes. If no Care Connection Match is made within one year, you will be given the opportunity to renew or cancel your Pledge.
When you become part of the People Who Care Network you are making a commitment to step up to the plate and do your part to ensure that every child has a future. There is no better way to turn your compassion into works that make an immediate difference.
