Carol Collard was part of an illustrious group of our community named to the Atlanta 500 (page 133) by Atlanta Magazine.
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 non-profit agency with a caring heart and a mind for business. At CaringWorks, which she co-founded, she oversees a 90-plus member team that operates supportive housing and behavioral health programs across metro Atlanta. She is a licensed master social worker and is also an associate professor of social work at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw.”
