Voices of CARE Podcast – June 23rd Town Hall Recording

Last month, CARE hosted a virtual Town Hall for our volunteers and supporters. Thank you to everyone who registered and participated in our first ever virtual event. We are happy to share the recording with the official launch of our new podcast Voices of CARE.

We would also like to acknowledge our panelists Tony Bussone, Business Education Teacher at Grayslake North High School; The Honorable Michelle Harner, US Bankruptcy Judge for District of Maryland; Harold Israel, Chair of CARE Chicago and Partner of Levenfeld Pearlstein, LLC; and Lynn Tavenner, Chair of CARE National Board of Directors and Partner of Tavenner and Beran, PLC.
