Carving Careers: Inside Sunrise Woodworks

Sunrise Woodworks is a one-of-a-kind woodshop located in Daytona Beach, Florida, where participants learn about the safe use of machinery and how to produce items such as wooden stakes. The shop’s origins are founded on the vision to see and actualize the potential in everyone. The woodshop currently has six participants, some of whom have been working in the woodshop for over 30 years.

Care Is In the Air

On National Caregivers Day, Care Can’t Wait, in partnership with Caring Across Generations, NDWA, and Hand in Hand: The Domestic Employers Network kicked off a month-long #PortraitsOfCare campaign across Times Square and throughout Washington, D.C. The campaign’s goal is to pay tribute to the beautiful and crucial caregiving that occurs in our homes and communities every day and to push for greater visibility and acknowledgment of caregiving in its many forms.
