Our Story

How we started.

Teammates Greg Bennett, a native of Texas, and Daniel Mercado, originally from Chile, began their journey of service in Phoenix in 2005 and 2007, respectively, working with a national workplace chaplaincy agency. Successful in this endeavor, they felt a great satisfaction positively impacting employees and companies throughout the Valley of the Sun and into Tucson.

However, they felt that a more comprehensive and effective model was needed, born in Arizona, with a heart dedicated locally to caring for Arizonans. After much consideration, they launched Phoenix-based Resource Employee Care LLC in 2013. At that time, they also began what would become Resource Community Care, in order to bring healing beyond the workplace and into the larger communities we all share.
