The Caring Institute was founded in 1985 by Val J. Halamandaris after a meeting with Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Mother Teresa suggested that there was a poverty of the spirit in the developed world which was much worse than the poverty of the body seen in the third world and asked Halamandaris to do something about it. Mother Teresa suggested identifying people who give back to society in extraordinary ways and holding them up as role models to be identified by others. The Caring Institute is a 501©(3) charitable organization.
