Livingston CARES is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to assisting communities and individuals locally, regionally,
nationwide, and globally in humanitarian projects, including disaster
relief and recovery efforts. In September 2005, our organization began as a response to Hurricane Katrina's devastation along the Gulf Coast. We are a collaborative effort among SUNY Geneseo groups and organizations and the surrounding Livingston County, New York community. Although the original 10 year commitment to assist the people and communities of Harrison County, Mississippi rebuild their homes and lives will be completed in 2016, Livingston CARES will continue the work in Mississippi to help low income families with housing and other projects.
Since January 2006, 881 volunteers have participated in 34 service trips to the Biloxi/Gulfport region. Our volunteers have done it all--- demolishing houses, installing sheetrock, painting, beautifying grounds at an elementary school, and everything in between. To hear more about our past work trips and volunteer experiences, click here. Since January of 2013, 90 volunteers have worked on similar home projects on Staten Island and Long Island to help families recover from Hurricane Sandy..
Livingston CARES is also involved in local projects in Livingston County. Our next major activity is scheduled for Saturday, April 18, 2015. Students from SUNY Geneseo will be participating in volunteer service activities in almost every town and village in the county in "Geneseo Goes to Town."
