CARE’s work in the United States
In CARE’s decades of 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 – who are disproportionately impacted by emergencies and systemic inequality – and (2) leverages its global experience by innovating proven solutions from abroad here at home.
To date, CARE has worked with partners to provide cash, food, housing, and jobs in the wake of 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.
