CARE Project Foundation, Inc

CARE Project Foundation, Inc formerly known as Project CARE was started in 1996 under the direction of Mr. Reginald W. Osborne and a very supportive group of associates. CARE stands as acronyms for the original name, "Concerned Action Recreational and Enrichment". The original design of the program was to focus on misguided youth from the ages of 10-17. Most of these individuals were primarily minority males (Latino & African-American) who had some type of concern or brush with the legal system. The participants came from our local juvenile justice system, group homes, foster care and even family and friends.The aim of the program was to redirect the incorrigible behavior of these individuals from negative activity to positive avenues in life. Many good deeds were done with this program, yet the "Founding Fathers" knew that there was more that could be accomplished.

 Today under a broader umbrella of participation and stronger leadership, along with more state-wide and national support we have a much greater hope and many more opportunities. We are now reaching out to "Special Needs Groups", "Senior Citizen Associations", and a great number of medical illness programs. 

 CARE Project Foundation, Inc is a nonprofit corporation. It's focus is centered on organizing and distribution of accumulated funds and gifts to support other charitable, educational, health related, humanitarian, religious and youth organizations. CARE Project Foundation, Inc is a certified 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and Texas Tax Code Section 11.18(c).
