We Believe Our Bahamian Neighbors Need Our Help

Disaster struck the islands of the Bahamas with hurricane Dorian. We believe our neighbors need our help. A group of us from across Palm Beach County decided to do something together to help. We are Palm Beach County Cares.

We Stand Together

Many people lost everything. Many desperately need supplies, food, and more. And the families coming to Palm Beach County will need help here too. We are a growing group of  citizens, Democrats and Republicans, business owners, and concerned citizens of Palm Beach County, all coming together to help The Bahamas through the rescue, restocking, and recovery. With a groundswell of support, Palm Beach County Cares has taken a strong stand for  our Bahamas Neighbors.

All for One. We Need Your Help

No person is an island. We believe we must help each other cope when disaster strikes. We are a unifying force for good. Bahamians need a disaster recovery plan. Thank you for joining hands with us to do just that. Every gift counts. Every item makes a difference to those who have lost or left behind everything. Please do what you can and DONATE today.


Thank you Palm Beach County! 

Volunteers!

Small Jets & Planes get into Small Islands in Greatest Need

Hope is Real.

OUR RESCUE STRATEGY TO REACH SMALL ISLANDS IS TO  STOCK SMALL JETS & PLANES AND GET THEM INTO THE REMOTE ISLANDS BEING OVERLOOKED. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF OUR RECENT SUCCESS WITH THIS APPROACH>>


Aileen Josephs couldn't sleep upset over the agony in the Bahamas. Tuesday morning, September 10th,  she and her husband Dr. Mitchell Josephs agreed to shop for  $1,000 worth of over the counter medical needs items on our Doctor's wish list. Next Aileen delivered these to the Signature Private Jetport, and thanks to the Falwell family,  the materials arrived to the Samaritan's Purse Tent Hospital at Treasure Cay, Abaco Island the NEXT day. Mission Accomplished. 

Heroes welcome! 

You are the Hope. Lives on the Line
