Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving

Operation Family Caregiver is a program of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI). RCI supports caregivers – both family and professional – through advocacy, education, research and service. It establishes local, state, national and international partnerships committed to building quality, long-term home and community-based services.

Located in Americus, Georgia, RCI is part of Georgia Southwestern State University. It was established in 1987 in honor of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, a GSW alumna who serves as president of the Institute's Board of Directors, to enhance her longstanding commitments to family caregiving and mental health.


Johnson & Johnson is committed to the wellness of service members, veterans, and their families, and, through its corporate contributions, proudly supports Operation Family Caregiver.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation's Mental Health & Well-Being initiative focuses on community-based solutions to aid in the much-needed response to the mental health and community reintegration needs of veterans, military service members, their families and the families of the fallen.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which is dedicated to ensuring that impacted post-9/11 veterans, service members, and their families are thriving long after they return home.
