Caring Foundation Board of Directors

The Caring Foundation began in 1985 with a mission that still stands today:

To identify unmet needs of children and families in the community and develop innovative programs to meet them

We are grateful to have leaders from western and central Pennsylvania communities who bring their expertise from healthcare, business, and non-profit sectors.
