The best way to change the future of a community is to educate its women and girls. Research shows that each semester of education a woman completes beyond high school raises her family’s economic status. Breaking the cycle of poverty is what inspires The Care Center’s emphasis on getting our students successfully into college.

The Care Center is a nonprofit organization providing resources and support to empower youth and their families to continue their educations, increase self-confidence, develop leadership skills, and make healthy life choices leading toward self-sufficiency.

By modeling our program after those of well-respected prep schools, we have achieved extraordinary results. We layer arts, humanities and athletics on top of basic GED education. Add to that high expectations and an equally high level of support, and our students’ passion for learning is re-ignited. Persistent, convincing messages about the importance of higher education – for our students as well as their children – encourage them to look toward a much brighter future and helps equip them to achieve it. Today, nearly 80 percent of Care Center graduates go on to college.

  • My Imagination

    by Dalisa Saldana

    Going away with you
    is like going to the moon
    and coming back.

    It's like sitting
    on the beach and
    listening to the waves.

    It's like going to China
    and exploring
    other cultures.

    You are my imagination
    where everything
    is perfect,
    colorful, and happy.
