Year-round student support

With a team of educators, law enforcement officials, mental health experts and community agencies, we work with students and their parents to address the barriers that influence academic performance, such as physical health, substance abuse, physical abuse, housing, nutrition and poverty. 

We offer on-site support year-round in a school environment to help students overcome these obstacles and improve their well-being. With this program, our primary goal is to help at-risk children stay in school and become self-sufficient and productive in the work force. 

CARE Team is a collaboration between United Way of Greater Stark County, Stark County Family Court, Stark County Job & Family Services, Stark Education Partnership, Stark County Family Council, Stark County Educational Service Center, Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery and the Stark County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
