Capital Region Cares
For the past 25 years , Comstock ’ s has published the Capital Region Cares special section to bring attention to the incredible work being done by myriad nonprofits in our region through articles and sponsored profiles .
The section was first created as a way to introduce our readers to these impressive nonprofits and highlight the critical work they do day after day to keep our region ’ s less-fortunate families and children safe , to assist with health challenges that oftentimes plague people both emotionally and financially , to provide shelter and homes for pets of all kinds , to offer job skills training to help people chart new life paths , and much more .
This edition of Capital Region Cares explores how these organizations are adapting to best serve the community and stay economically viable in a constantly changing world .
We proudly celebrate their tenacity and hope you ’ ll join us in supporting their critical missions .
