Our Community Partners Rule!
We stand on the shoulders of the great organizations that came before us. Our list of partners isn't a laundry list of stuff that's out there. These are the organizations we have experience with. Organizations that have proven to us they're serving caregivers well. Heck, when we send you to one of these partners it doesn't even feel like we're sending you somewhere else.
Why is the ALS Association so important?
The local chapter of the ALS Association has been a tremendous support to me as a caregiver, as I navigated the ever-changing needs of my husband, while he was still alive. Plugging into ALSA's programs, like the monthly support groups, the equipment loan pool and most definitely the volunteer assistance program really helped me to feel like I was not in this alone. Ever. That is the beauty of an organization that's robust with quality staff and thoughtful resources."

Why is Angel Foundation so important?
I've sent my boys to Angel summer camps (for kid's who's parents have cancer) the last 3 summers. Every time it's a completely magical experience for them. I think of it as a camp for kid caregivers. I get choked up thinking about how soon my boys will be old enough to be leaders there, that they'll be coaching the newbies. I can't imagine a more important and meaningful experience, these are the moments that turn young boys into full grown, well adjusted men.
Why is Camp Kesem so important?
Camp Kesem has given me a family of people who are always there for me and understand what my situation is like. Camp Kesem has truly been one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life." - Kesem camper
Why is Cancer Legal Care so important?
One of the primary challenges a caregiver faces is protecting their loved one from the onslaught of information that follows a cancer diagnosis. Caregivers don't need flyers and monologues from service providers. They need dialogues. Dialogues like they get when they call Cancer Legal Care! And trust me, it's a tremendous relief to have a lawyer on your healthcare team!
Why is Gilda's Club so important?
Gilda's is beautiful place filled with beautiful and kind people. Calm, serene, welcoming. Plus, the noogie nights for the kiddos is always a great experience for them!
