Atlanta Committee for CARE

Atlanta city skyline

CARE USA has called Atlanta our hometown and headquarters for the past 25 years. As we prepare to commemorate CARE’s 75th anniversary in 2020, we see a unique opportunity to grow our community in Atlanta and expand our capacity to impact some of the most significant issues of our time.

As CARE both celebrates its legacy of 75 years as a humanitarian leader and boldly transforms into the CARE of the future, we are convening a diverse and dynamic group of motivated individuals in Atlanta to work shoulder to shoulder with us to build innovative, sustainable solutions to defeat poverty, respond to humanitarian crises, ensure social justice and create a world where all people live with dignity and security. We are proud to introduce the Atlanta Committee for CARE.

The Atlanta Committee for CARE is the inaugural member of a nationwide network of committees working as a unified force to lead, energize and resource a shared vision of investing in women and girls as a force multiplier for change.

At this important moment for CARE – and for the world – we hope you will consider joining this group of committed global citizens in Atlanta. CARE is proud to call Atlanta home and we hope to add your voice as we build a global movement from Atlanta – our shared hometown.
