Christlike AgroTourism for Racial Equality (C.A.R.E.) Wellness Center & Services is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity with a mission to cultivate safe farm stays, holistic retreats, and wellness programs for BIPOC community and allies who suffer from Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Our goal is fundraising and launching wellness programs that focus on Spirituality, AgroTourism and Racial Justice. Please visit www.carewellnesscenter.org for more information.

Our board is new and needs help developing its bylaws, policies and procedures, and collaborating with the community in fundraising events and submitting grant proposals, referrals, and contract bids.

Open Seats:
1. Vice Chair (nonprofit/program management)
2. Advisor (legal/compliance)
3. Advisor (accounting/finance)

What we're looking for: Someone with 1. Time 2. Dedication 3. Experience

1. Time:
Board meetings will be conducted monthly on a 2hr zoom call or in person, depending on locations. Committees and advisory boards are welcome once the structure is solid. We all have personal lives, work, family, and hobbies to contend with for our time. We need someone with great time management who can spend a few hours each month staying connected with the board (email, text, zoom) and attend regular monthly meetings because without the votes, we can't make change.

2. Dedication:
Board members must be dedicated not only to diversity, equality, and inclusion, but to their own divine purpose enough to advocate for themselves, their beliefs, and bring their ideas, creativity, experience, and expertise to the board table. While we welcome colorful people from all backgrounds, it is required that decisions be based solely on the mission of this nonprofit and not in any one's best interest or agenda. Please visit www.carewellnesscenter.org for more details. Board members are asked to commit to advancing the C.A.R.E. causes, including networking, community events, fundraising, and voting on board policy changes. Though it's a new board with limited resources and capabilities, the board's commitment to progress will launch this nonprofit into better resources, improve capabilities, and launch it's programs further if the board works collectively and actively participates, conducts research, and engages with its community.

3. Experience:
We are in search of at least four Board Members interested in sitting in one of the available seats: Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and Board Member. We are looking for professionals with expertise in the following fields:
- management/nonprofit
- financial accounting/bookkeeping
- secretarial/clerical/administrative, and
- legal aide/attorney
If you have experience in nonprofit or NGO work, fundraising and grant writing, I highly recommend you apply. If you have never been on a board, this could be a great opportunity to get some experience that, not only looks great on a resume, but also helps with this great social cause, building our nonprofit from the ground-up. I highly encourage persons of color or allies to apply.

About CHRISTLIKE AGRO-TOURISM FOR RACIAL EQUALITY WELLNESS CENTER &SERVICES

Location:

2260 DIVISION STREET NW, OLYMPIA, WA 98502, US

Mission Statement

To provide a safe farm stay, holistic retreat and wellness program to combat Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome by focusing on Spirituality, AgroTourism, and Racial Justice.

Description

C.A.R.E. was founded in 2020 during the height of the pandemic as a result of my own spiritual awakening and pursuit of an eco-friendly community that was egalitarian and diverse. There were many things that impacted me as a black, Pansexual mother with disabilities. I, myself, had to learn a lot to work through PTSS and while backpacking Europe for 6 grueling months and volunteering on farms in Washington and Oregon, I came to appreciate and respect the healing abilities of these tools and became purposed with introducing them to my community in the pursuit of self-actualization and enlightenment. If we are to help others, we must first heal ourselves. If we are to progress as a community, we have to first feel safe to explore our own Spirituality and history, within our own walls, without outside triggers.

Our first pilot program, the C.A.R.E. Re-Entry Program (SREP), is a research program to serve young black adults after incarceration at no/low cost to help them reintegrate into their communities and avoid recidivism. Our program includes a Healing Circle (detox, meditation and yoga), Nature Therapy, Self Advocacy training, Social Racialization training, and Individualized Counseling to address anger, self-esteem, and community socialization. We have partnered with local nonprofit farms, entrepreneurs, mentors, therapists, social workers, DEI trainers, and social activists to facilitate training and provide a strong support network.
