In collaboration with Patrick Henry Family Services, Appomattox Department of Social Services, and the local faith based community, the public is invited to the initial launch of CarePortal in Appomattox County.

It will go live for a virtual community event from 12:15 to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24.

CarePortal is a national platform that brings faith and government entities together by using a volunteer network and technology to bring the needs of children and families in crisis to the attention of local churches.

Child welfare workers uncover the need. Careportal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond.

Join virtually for motivating speakers, to witness new technology and learn more about how to get involved.
