Carol Collard was once again part of an illustrious group in our community named as one of Atlanta’s most powerful leaders in the 2023 Atlanta 500 (page 133), which is published annually by Atlanta Magazine. Carol was also named in 2022.
Here’s what Atlanta Magazine had to say:
“Carol Collard became a passionate participant in the fight to reduce homelessness while working for Progressive Redevelopment Inc. In 1998, Collard returned to school to study social work and ultimately earned a PhD in the field. The New Orleans native has worked for more than 20 years in supportive housing and in grappling with the complex issues that can result in homelessness. Her combined expertise has given her the ability to operate a nonprofit agency with a caring heart and a mind for business. At CaringWorks, which she cofounded, she oversees a 90-plus member team that operates supportive housing and behavioral health programs across metro Atlanta, resulting in ending homelessness for over 10,000 households. She is a licensed master social worker and is also an associate professor of social work at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw.”
