The CARES application requires that volunteer applicants create a username and password for themselves. No one at CARES has access to your password. CARES suggests that you use your email address as your username. Using your email address will provide you with a username that is unique.
Once an applicant is accepted that username will be used in the future to provide volunteers access to more information about CARES and the volunteer activities that are available. The functionality for volunteers to use a username/password for this purpose is not available today and CARES hopes to have this ability available by the end of 2023.
