Mission & Vision

New Canaan CARES is an independent, non-profit community organization whose purpose is to advance the health and well-being of youth and families. CARES provides responsive educational programs and professional development that support and strengthen parenting skills, positive youth development, and healthy lifestyles – free-of-charge. 


CARES supports a diverse population of the New Canaan community from preschool age children through senior citizens. We serve members of the community of all races and genders. All of our programs are offered free of charge to the community enabling us to serve across all socioeconomic groups. We emphasize the inclusion of students with learning differences, social and academic challenges, and make our programs accessible by offering them after school during school, evenings and weekends.
