The Caregiver Coalition Fund of America (CareCFA) recognizes that there is a correlation between what we build today and how we will assist people tomorrow. It is in this context that CareCFA is committed to developing Care Communities throughout the United States. The Division of Care Communities brings to nonpaid family caregivers (i.e., family caregivers), programs that support their physical, emotional, spiritual, and socioeconomic needs, and promote their overall well-being.
