RID CARES is RID’S philanthropic initiative as a result of CM 2011.12- All future National and Regional Conferences include a philanthropic initiative that benefits the Deaf Community as part of their respective Conferences. 

The RID CARES initiative strives to provide extraordinary opportunities for interpreters and members of the Deaf community to give back by partnering alongside remarkable organizations with missions to make a difference in our society! 

Aligned with their biennial conference and the associated region, RID CARES partners with an organization that encompasses the ideals of a world-changing initiative in order to bring awareness and support to difficult issues facing the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deaf-Blind and interpreting communities. Join us as we share our intense dedication to philanthropy and community involvement, as well as our vision to improve the communities we belong to and serve, in order to make a positive impact on the future!
