Coordinating Area Resources Effectively; (or CARE Directory for short) is your go-to site for any kind of information regarding services in the Brainerd Lakes region. We have information for anything you may be looking for; whether it may be arts and culture, family services, transportation, recreation, and many more categories. Ultimately, the CARE Directory is a compilation of non-profit corporations, groups, organizations, service clubs, and service providers operating in Crow Wing County and surrounding areas. You will find the name, address, phone number, website and email address (if available), and a description of the services listed in nearly 30 categories. People and organizations that would benefit from this manual are social workers, teachers, counselors, and churches (just to name a few). Please let us know of any updates that you have, or if you want to be included in this directory.
