A few years ago, my husband and I were both without jobs. And with that came no insurance. I happened to find out about Careavan by searching online. When I went, I was just so grateful because it was better that I could have ever imagined. The people and volunteers were extremely nice and understanding and helpful. It is nice to know that during our difficult times, there are still people out there that give you hope that you are not alone in this. And most important, they care about my children's well being. God bless you!

I am a school nusre, and through out the year I refer many parents to the Care Van Immunization program for shots for their children. The Care Vans are free, easy to access, and offer times after 5PM for working parents. This is an enormaously helpful program for parents and for my school system.

I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Care Van Program once and it was an amazing experience. I wasn't aware that there were so many children who needed help getting their vaccines for school. The Care Van Program is great because their service is free and they did not turn anyone away!!!

Would you volunteer for this group again?
