CARE’s work in the United States

The United States has the worst inequality among developed nations, disproportionately affecting women and communities of color. CARE has solutions from its decades of global work that can reduce poverty and inequality, especially among women, in the U.S. Moreover, in CARE’s work abroad, local expertise is central to effectively empowering vulnerable residents. Accordingly, CARE’s domestic work leverages a network of trusted local partners to respond to natural and humanitarian emergencies and provide long-term economic and food security. Through the network, CARE:

  1. Focuses on women and vulnerable communities of color
  2. Leverages its global experience by adapting proven solutions from abroad here at home

To date, CARE has worked with partners to provide cash, food, housing, and jobs following emergencies. We have also worked to reduce long-term food insecurity with regular food delivery in major markets around the country. And, we have piloted savings and loans groups with women entrepreneurs. To date, our work has stretched from California to the Midwest to the Gulf Coast.
