Our Mission

The Caring Institute has promoted the values of caring, integrity and public service since 1985. It was formed that year at the behest of Mother Teresa. Stirred by her example, the Institute has always held fast to an ideal: most problems can be solved if human beings truly care for one another. The Institute celebrates heroic people for their selfless service, especially to the dying, disabled, and disadvantaged. The dedication of these unselfish people to public service uplifts us all and ennobles the human race. It is committed to spreading the caring credo: you can do well by doing good. To reinforce this standard, we continue to broadcast a message of social responsibility. It comes from our belief that one person, with the heart and will, can make a positive difference in the world.
