A new chapter needs a new website.

With fresh leadership and an aim to deepen our impact through grassroots organizations and direct programming, The Carrie Meek Foundation has expanded to invest in systems-level efforts that ensure equitable health, housing, education and economic opportunities for people in marginalized and underserved communities across South Florida.
Our new website is under construction, so please check below for updates on our recent work, join our mailing list and stay tuned for our new look in the coming months.
