Care by Community is an after-school program for homeless and “at-risk” students from our neighboring schools. On Mondays and Wednesdays, students who participate in the program come here to receive help with homework, school projects, reading, and any other academic needs. They also have some recreation time to play games and just have fun! The students are then fed a hot meal and then taken home. The program was created to help not only the students but to allow their parents to work later into the evenings. This is a great way to reach out and make a positive and lasting impact on our community! The CBC program has proven to help improve students’ grades, behavior, and over all self-esteem! It also helps families help themselves and pull themselves out of homelessness.
- Donations of snacks should be clearly marked “CBC After School Program” and left in the church office.

We are involved with the City of Virginia Beach, Partners in Education.
You can volunteer with the children doing one-on-one homework assistance, reading, school projects and even playing games! Volunteers can work one day a week, a month, or more. Please arrive at 3:15pm and stay for dinner while we feed our CBC children!
