“Cavemen Strong” is non-profit organization made up of Carlsbad Alumni and Citizens of Carlsbad, NM from coast to coast and in-between. We have many members who have donating their time and energy to help us with implementing positive movements each and every year for the Carlsbad community.
Our mission: We have designed scholarship programs K-12, established an emergency relief program to help victims during a crisis, Christmas programs for the less fortunate and honoring outstanding citizens and first responders each year.
Each year we honor:
