"When you learn, teach. When you get, give." - Maya Angelou

Colette Allen Charities was founded with the mission to support motivated individuals inspired to improve their lives through education and training.


Co-founders Meg and Chad Newhouse started the charity out of a desire to pay it forward. Through a variety of experiences growing up, we each witnessed poverty firsthand. We also witnessed and experienced the generosity of community members, family and friends and have felt the difference it made in our own lives and those around us. We believe that when someone is motivated to make a change in their life, this is a magic moment, and is the time when that person needs the most support.  Through Colette Allen Charities, our goal is to provide this support to people who are motivated to improve their lives - to help them transition from where they are to where they want to be.  


This year, we are proud to support Cara in as they enter their 25th year of service. Through hands-on jobs training, educational programs, and life coaching, Cara prepares motivated individuals to break the cycles of homelessness and poverty to transform their lives. 

We are also proud to offer scholarships to high school students who demonstrate a financial need and are pursuing a degree in Education.
