Q: What we do and why we do it?

Founded since 1996, iDARE®, Inc. has been a concept of a grassroot individual involvement to servicing families, children, and communities. For decades and with such passion, one woman has volunteered in many different areas of outreach programs.  Not until after the passing of her beloved father and through decades of difficult challenging circumstances,  Ms. Nicky Dare has made her beloved father's dreams of continued serving for others became reality. Her beloved father had donated family funds to start this organization in 2013.  Ms. Dare has taken a personal pledge to continue her family tradition in living selflessly to help others in need. The concept of iDARE has finally became a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with its mission to continue servicing families, children, and communities since 2013.
