The programs offered by C.A.R.E Society were initially established by Dr. Irene Estay in 1995 and have evolved over the years to a comprehensive program that educates the public by providing courses, seminars and workshops on self-esteem, empowerment and other related topics.
C.A.R.E. Society programs are geared towards specific audiences including: Women, Men, Adults 65+, Youth, and Expecting Parents or Parents of Infants. In addition, training is available for qualified professionals looking to expand their knowledge of empowerment and self-esteem work and to obtain credits through their respective professional associations.
Like many non-profits, staff is kept to a minimum to ensure administrative costs are maintained, and two program coordinators and one manager/facilitator run the entire program. Funds are limited because all the programs are offered at no-cost or low-cost to participants making fundraising an important part of maintaining and growing the organization.
