Guiding Principles

OUR MISSION: Our mission at Caprecia Cares is to mentor and empower the lives of at-risk teen girls by teaching them to become effective change agents in their own lives.

OUR VISION: At Caprecia Cares, we envision a world of powerful young ladies with endless potential who are committed to reach their full potential.

Meet the Founder

Caprecia Miller, Founder and President of Caprecia Cares, is a United States Army Veteran of 23 years. During her time in the military, she committed to community service throughout her career. From volunteering at local schools and homeless shelters, to organizing food, coat, and toy drives, she recognizes the importance of giving back.

Through personal experiences as a teenager and young adult, volunteering in the community, Caprecia found her passion in mentoring and empowering young girls. She started Caprecia Cares because she understands first‑hand the challenges and obstacles girls face that often prevent them from being the successful young lady they were purposed to be. She recognizes that a difficult past doesn’t mean girls can’t have a positive future.

Caprecia understands the connection between trauma and and negative behaviors  such as alcohol and drug use, truancy, teen pregnancy, and other risk-taking behaviors.

She reminds girls they can accomplish any goal they set to achieve despite any past or current circumstance. Her vision is to assist young girls to see themselves under the same powerful light. 

Caprecia believes in leading by example. In the spirit of that belief, she holds a Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Dallas Baptist University. She is currently enrolled at George Mason University and will graduate in May 2021 with her Master of Social Work.  She volunteers countless hours in the community and has experienced the beauty of different cultures by serving as a Homestay Host for Foreign Exchange students from Mali and Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa, introducing them to life in America.

“I am a strong believer in mentoring, inspiring and empowering others, especially young girls. Research confirms the importance of having a quality mentoring relationship and shows it has a powerful positive effect on young people in personal, academic, and professional situations.  Mentoring for me has always been first and foremost a relationship. I meet extraordinary young girls and women and I think how can help this person? How can I open doors for her and be supportive, encouraging and nourishing?”

~In Her Own Words~

Meet the Team

Our girls bear witness to a society of excess and celebrity, and everything they see, thanks to a totally new world of social media, fuels their frenzied quest to be “somebody”  – anybody but who they are. This sets them up for a lifetime of striving for some distorted illusion of perfection while never feeling good enough. And it’s not going away! Therefore it is vital to provide our girls with role models and mentors that can show them how to maneuver their way through the minefield of pop culture and how to emerge intact, strong, confident, and fully equipped to create a life that they want – not what the media tells them they should want.

Become a Mentor

A key goal of Caprecia Cares is to provide caring and supportive Women-Veteran mentors for teen girls. Mentoring relationships offer girls the potential to overcome hurdles, cope with problems, and learn basic skills necessary for a productive, healthy adulthood.

Throughout the program, experienced mentors are assigned to each girl to help guide them along their journey. Our mentors provide the necessary coaching and teaching to assist girls in making responsible decisions that will lead to positive outcomes.
