Goombay Cares begin in 2005 as a youth base program called Young Goombay. Our mission was to focus on the needs of African-American youths between the ages of 12-18 in the Washington, DC area. Through outdoor adventures, sports programs, field trips and adult mentoring, Young Goombay Adventurers aimed to enhance the physical, mental and social well being of its participants.
In 2014 Goombay Cares was created to continue the mission of Young Goombay but we included working with adults and raising money for other charities. In 2018 Goombay Cares was officially registered as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has focused it's efforts on community engagement, youth programs, food & clothing giveaways, educational programs and life skills for disadvantaged individuals and families.
