Central Alberta Refugee Effort (C.A.R.E.)
C.A.R.E. was formed in 1979 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to assist with the settlement of Indochinese refugees fleeing the aftermath of the Vietnam War. A year later, C.A.R.E. became a registered non-profit society. In 1982 it received status as a charitable organization. Since our founding, our mission has been to assist in the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees in the community.
“Through partnerships, programs and services, C.A.R.E. supports successful newcomer integration.”
“Newcomers feel valued as contributing members of an inclusive Central Alberta.”
