About Us​

Care and Community was founded in July 2009 and developed by CEO, Becky
Bowar, when her program needed to expand to accommodate the needs of her participants. Becky has worked with Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled children and adults since 1995.

Over the years, Becky has been working with families in home, school and community settings. In 2022, Care & Community expanded adding Residential Services to the services we provide. 

We believe supporting individuals and families in their own homes is crucial for fostering independence, dignity, and a sense of belonging. Our commitment to personalized care and community integration remains unwavering, as we continue to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of those we serve. 

By offering comprehensive residential services alongside our existing programs, we strive to create environments where every individual can thrive and lead fulfilling lives within the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.


Enrich lives in big ways through education, support and advocacy.

In small, personal ways through personal connection.

But in all ways, enrich the lives of those we serve.


Promote Acceptance, Inclusion and Independence

Program Manager

Hello, I'm Donna. I came to Care and Community a little over a year ago. I am the Program Manager, which means that I do a little bit of everything (like we all do!). When I'm on my time I enjoy traveling, cooking, camping, and spending time with my family. I absolutely love our staff and our participants! As challenging as they may be at times, I wouldn't trade any of them, or the experiences we've had, for the world. I've learned a lot over the last year and cherish every moment.

Direct Support Professional

Hello! My name is Alyssa and I have been a direct support professional at Care & Community since July of 2017. A goal of mine is to one day be fluent in American Sign Language(ASL). Growing up with dyslexia, ASL has been the only language I have really been able to understand, and as I’m learning, I have come to find it’s a really beautiful language. One of my favorite things about the job is that we are so active, we’re always doing something exciting! I also love building relationships with individuals and learning new things with them and about them. There is always something new to learn and our participants remind me of that every day. Care and Community is so much more than a job to me. In my free time I like to play softball, color and watch Greys Anatomy. I also have two dogs Tyson and Snoop as well as a cat Nugget. They also take up quite a lot of my free time. Thanks for taking the time to get to know about me, I look forward to getting to know you!


Direct Support Professional

Since joining Care & Community in 2018, I have found immense fulfillment and satisfaction in my career choice. The opportunity to work closely with our clients and witness their remarkable progress in life skills and personal growth has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Prior to my tenure at Care Community, I actively engaged in various roles within my children's extracurricular activities. I served as a teacher's aide, Girl Scout leader, PTO member, and guard mom. Currently, I hold the position of President on the Board of Directors for my children's winter guard organization. I firmly believe that a life dedicated to service and giving back to the community is the most fulfilling path one can take. I am happily married to my husband of 26 years, and together we have raised four wonderful children. It has been an immense joy to witness their growth and development into responsible and accomplished adults.
