All veterans know they don’t serve alone, whether in the field or at home. Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) is a free and confidential coaching program for the people who take care of you when you return home — we call those people caregivers. And caregivers need help too.
OFC helps caregivers find strength through their journey so they feel fully capable of living their best lives, regardless of what life throws at them. Our specially-trained coaches help military families learn how to overcome the obstacles they face and manage any challenges that might come along. Caregivers who complete the program are less depressed, more satisfied with their lives, have fewer health issues, and are more prepared to take care of their families and veteran. And they report reduced anxiety among children in the household. Operation Family Caregiver is a program of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers (RCI). Established in honor of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, RCI has supported caregivers of all kinds for more than 30 years.
FREE FOR ALL. Our program is fully supported by donors and philanthropies at no cost to you or your family.
CONFIDENTIAL. Caregivers and their families can be completely honest with OFC coaches, and what you share is between you.
PERSONALIZED. There’s no “average” caregiver, so OFC looks different for every caregiver, tailored to what you need, when you need it.
WHEREVER, WHENEVER. Caregivers can meet with their coach in person, over the phone, or video chat.
LONG-LASTING. We teach caregivers how to overcome today’s obstacles but also to manage whatever they might face tomorrow.
PROVEN. Caregivers who complete the program have fewer health complaints, less depression, and are more satisfied with their lives—and children living in the house are less anxious.
Strong, Healthy Families
For a service member, veteran, or family member, every day looks different. Learning to live with post-traumatic stress, a traumatic brain injury, a physical disability, or memories is a journey – both for those who have been injured and the loved ones who take care of them.
If you or someone you know could use some help navigating this journey, OFC can help. Learn more or sign up at www.operationfamilycaregiver.org.
