Good morning,


As we wrap up 2022, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the many partners we worked with this year to bring support, resources and services to so many family caregivers. Because of you, we’ve been able to strengthen caregiver assistance at the local, regional and national levels through collaborative programs and initiatives.

In this issue, we’re highlighting just a few of this year’s partnership projects (you can read about even more in our 2022 Impact Report).

We’re also sharing a round-up of local organizations/resources that serve family caregivers and their care recipients, low-income families and others in need. These organizations are doing incredible work in their communities, and we hope that by highlighting them here, we can help make meaningful connections for your organization and work.

We feel so grateful to share and be part of this wonderful provider community. Thank you for all you do for your patients, clients and communities!

We wish you a safe and happy holiday season!

Thank you,

Family Caregiver Alliance

A Year of Partnerships

Looking back on 2022, we feel proud about the number of family caregivers we were able to support and serve. That number was made possible by the incredible peer organizations and partners we collaborated with to improve the lives of caregivers. Here are just a few of those projects and partners—check out our 2022 Impact Report to see more!

Connecting Peer Organizations

We hope you'll check out these organizations and add them to your resources list for your clients/patients or as potential organizational partners. These organizations are based in San Francisco County—in future issues, we will share resources across the Bay Area's other five counties:

  • Legal Aid at Work — This nonprofit legal services organization has been assisting low-income working families for more than 100 years with free legal info, clinics, helplines, individualized assistance and more.

Family Caregiver Services by State

Now, finding caregiver resources by state is easier than ever! We recently revamped our Family Caregiver Services by State online tool, enabling family caregivers, providers and others to easily locate public, nonprofit and private programs and services nearest to the caregiver’s care recipient—no matter where they reside. Explore this comprehensive tool here.
