Who We Are


Welcome to DARE2SERVE, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created to improve and maintain lasting relationships between 1st responders and the communities they serve.

Our mission is to provide education to our communities by giving free lectures to churches, community centers, schools, and other public venues as well as utilizing social media channels and the corporation’s website to provide facts, statistics, and other related data on causes, current efforts and solutions to eradicating distrust of first responders.

Our programs include sending out ambassadors to raise social consciousness about our cause on a local and state level, and to hold fundraising events in order to provide immediate relief and assistance to any first responder and their family suffering in any way.
