Caring Agents Responding to Emergency Situations

If tragedy finds its way to you, the devastation can be overwhelming. Whether it is an illness, serious injury or a catastrophic event that hinders your ability to earn a living, WeMAR C.A.R.E.S. was created to assist you.

Your fellow WeMAR members recognize that their peers are among those who need help and want to do something to make a difference for them. In 2008, WeMAR C.A.R.E.S. was established to assist both REALTOR® and affiliate members, and their immediate families, who encounter catastrophic financial crisis. It’s especially in times of hardship that we need to come together and help each other. Through funds raised for WeMAR C.A.R.E.S., we can assist those in need. We truly are “Caring Agents Responding to Emergency Situations”!

In 2016, WeMAR C.A.R.E.S. received 18 applications for assistance from individuals within our WeMAR family. This means that someone you know and have worked with may have experienced a tragedy or illness affecting their ability to work or support their family. While trying to heal, they're under stress and exhausted from wondering how they’re going to pay medical bills, get to doctor appointments, or clean the house. WeMAR C.A.R.E.S. can help relieve some of the burden and give them hope.

What if an illness, accident, or a natural disaster touches your family? You may need help with medical bills, at-home care during recovery, transportation to and from doctor appointments, or expenses for day-to-day living like house cleaning or meal assistance. Sadly, funeral arrangements may be needed. Are you financially prepared to manage your budget with these kinds of added costs? Would even a little bit help you?
