Mission Statement

Greater DC Cares connects community assets - skills, time and goods - with community needs in ways that improve lives and strengthen our region.


Greater D.C. Cares connects volunteers' skills and interests with our community's critical needs. Volunteers provide hands-on assistance to community-based service organizations, including preparing meals for the homeless, taking inner city children on nature trips, teaching sports to physically and mentally disabled children, mentoring at-risk youth and delivering meals to homebound elderly. Greater D.C. Cares also tests community service organizations and programs, designs individually tailored team projects and serves as a resource and referral center for individual volunteers. We successfully involve people in the communities in which they live and work: We have more than 13,000 volunteers ranging from age 20-65, who donate more than 5,000 hours of volunteer service each month.

Would you recommend Greater DC Cares?

by John L. from Vienna, VA (August 31, 2009)
I have volunteered at Greater DC Cares for quite some time and I highly recommend them if you are looking volunteer opportunities in the Washington, DC area. The volunteer projects they put you on are worthwhile and very well organized.
