Building academic and general life skills are essential for long-term success of our youth. In addition to treating their skin problems and physical illnesses, we teach social and general life skills. We believe that empowering our youth with these key competencies has a direct impact on their self-esteem and self-efficacy. This is a core component of CARRY’s mission.
CARRY is the only known non-profit organization addressing the painful skin issues of at-risk and foster youth in the United States. We conduct dermatologic clinics and provide other medical services for at-risk and foster children in foster group homes, homeless shelters, and after school programs.
CARRY is a non-profit organization that primarily relies on private funding to continue to serve the community. Your donations and fundraising contributions facilitate support of our existing programs as well as the expansion and creation of new programs that support the mission of CARRY.
