The ISKCON Devotee Care Program is intended to give complete care to ISKCON devotees. A Devotee Care Committee has been formed aiming at this sole purpose. Interestingly, the Devotee Care Committee was born of the Preaching Committee. Members of the Preaching Committee reflected that if devotees are not well taken care of, then preaching would not have any lasting effect. They understood that preaching can attract people but it doesn't keep them. The GBC members recognized the need to care for devotees individually and collectively and thus formulated the Devotee Care Committee.
