Our Work


The Headley Carter Cares Foundation awards long-term scholarships to children with behavioral challenges whose families have limited finances.

Designed to support recipients through high school graduation, these scholarships enable students to enjoy school- and community-based activities in safe, uplifting environments.

Through such activities, students learn alternative ways to respond to everyday life challenges. Over time, their sense of self-worth is strengthened, and their outlook for the future begins to broaden in new ways.


“Thank you for the scholarship so that I can go to extended day care after school. I like going because I made friends, I get to do my homework, and on Fridays I play. Thank you very much!”
