Communities & Support Groups for Caregivers

We’ve partnered with online and in-person communities and support groups for caregivers.

The Lucas Project

The Lucas Project supports caregivers by providing recognition and respite. We believe that society is full of compassionate and kind individuals who want to help caregivers; however, if they don’t know what our needs are, they can’t help. Recognition is the first hurdle, and the second involves providing tangible relief for the families through respite options.

We Are Brave Together

The heart of We Are Brave Together, an international community of caregiving moms, is to strengthen, encourage, educate and inspire all moms of children with disabilities through their unique and difficult caregiving journeys. To be a caregiving mom is to be a mother who cares for a child or adult child with any type of challenge: medical, mental, behavioral, genetic, developmental, psychiatric, learning, cognitive, or physical. The We Are Brave Together community is woven with one common thread: we are here to support and strengthen one another, and increase our mental health amidst chronic hardship. We offer support groups, (virtual and in-person), retreats, retreat scholarships, and, our Brave Together Podcast, which is a library of inspiration, stories, and resources.
