Good morning,


As FCA gets underway with several new initiatives for 2022 and beyond, we’re feeling especially grateful for our organizational partners, both present and past. That’s because in joining forces with them, we’ve been able to help more family caregivers with more services than we’d be able to do alone. Together, we've been able to provide:


  • free trainings for providers on culturally competent care,

  • in-depth videos for family caregivers who do nursing tasks,

  • gatherings, classes and events for caregivers, ...

...and much more. Check out the blog linked below to learn more.


As part of our efforts to develop even more local partnerships that will support more Bay Area caregivers, we’re happy to introduce Julian Leus, our new Community Engagement Specialist. In the Q&A linked below, you’ll learn more about Julian and how they work with providers and organizations to increase community support for family caregivers, as well as how to get in touch.


And finally, we want to let you know that FCA is moving! Effective April 1, we'll be in our new offices (same neighborhood, just a block away from our old digs):


235 Montgomery St., #930

San Francisco, CA 94104


Our phone number is the same:

(800) 445-8106

(415) 434-3388

Thank you,

Family Caregiver Alliance
