We imagine a thriving, sustainable, and interconnected community
We provide individuals access to information technology, medical equipment, and supplies. Through the restoration of donated computers and reusable medical devices, including the responsible recycling of non-functional components, we strive to cultivate an equitable and sustainable community in Southern Arizona.
We Care Tucson is 100% focused on the Tucson community. WCT bridges the digital divide. To accomplish this, we collect used technology, i.e. computers, monitors, cell phones, and more. We sort the donations, refurbish what we can, and recycle what we can't use - helping to keep all of these devices out of our local landfills.
The refurbished computers and other usable electronics go into our store and are available for sale to the general public. We accept applications from those who are economically challenged for our low-cost computer program to help bridge the digital divide.
WCT's other program is the rental of durable medical equipment, which people can borrow for a minimal administrative fee, plus we provide free medical supplies for those in need.

Meet The Staff
MeMe began as the new Executive Director on August 1. She comes with lots of experience in fundraising and donor development. Her love for technology and gadgets makes her a perfect fit. She loves to garden and take her two Greyhounds and one Siberian Husky for walks along the River Loop.
Director of Tech and Recycling
Coleman graduated from the University of Arizona with a passion for repairing and saving old technology. He is a Tucson native with previous experience in math education and data-based political organization. While he has taken technical classes, he credits early experiences building gaming PCs for his current IT skills. In addition, he instructs volunteers in computer repair. With his background, he was a natural to oversee Technology and E-Recycling.
Waylon is an Army veteran and an ITT graduate, so naturally, his passions encompass anything that carries electricity. At a young age, he took apart just about everything. As Waylon grew up, he figured out how to put the stuff back together. Waylon began at We Care Tucson a year ago as the marketing manager. With his great customer service skills and background, he is now the Store Manager, assisting customers with their needs in both medical and technological needs.
