Our Story

Concern America is a globally focused community development organization. We work with communities in economically impoverished regions so that community members themselves become empowered to improve their own lives — focusing on health, sanitation, education, and income-generation projects.

For more than 45 years, we have worked in 15 countries on 4 continents and have measurably impacted the lives of more than 2 million people. We currently operate community-centered programs in materially impoverished areas of Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico.

Our Mission:
To Transform Need into Self-Sufficiency

Our Vision:
Health Care, Clean Water, Education and Economic Opportunity for Every Community Worldwide
