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 devestation along the Gulf Coast. We are a collaborative effort among SUNY Geneseo groups and organizations and the surrounding Livingston County, New York community with a 10 year commitment to assist the people and communities of Harrison County, Mississippi rebuild their homes and lives.
Since January 2006, 881 volunteers have participated in 34 service trips to the Biloxi/Gulfport area of Mississippi. Our volunteers have done it all--- demolishing a two-story house, 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.
Livingston CARES is also involved in local projects in Livingston County. A major local activity is scheduled for Saturday, April 16, 2016. Students from SUNY Geneseo will be particpating in volunteer service activites in almost every town and village in the county in "Geneseo Goes to Town."
