Strong military. Stronger families.
The strength of our military is legendary, but at the heart of our military is a strong family structure. Operation Family Caregiver helps create strong and healthy families by supporting the unsung heroes behind our heroes; the loving families and friends that care for them when they come home.
About the program
Operation Family Caregiver provides free and confidential support to the families of those who have served our nation. We help the families of returning service members and veterans adjust to the “new normal” by coping more effectively with problems they never imagined. Our specially trained coaches help military families learn how to overcome the obstacles they face and to manage any challenges that might come along.
How it works
Our coaches create a custom 8-session program unique to each family. Most coaches and caregivers meet using video conferencing or phone calls. In-person meetings are available in select cities. Together, caregivers and their coaches develop strategies to help them get through the tough times and make plans for how to manage over the long term. Meet our coaches, learn more about how it works, and get started now.
“Operation Family Caregiver provides me the tools to identify stress, create options for solutions, and provides support which allows me to solve problems. With the constant moves and frequent deployments that come with the military lifestyle, these tools allow me to maintain a positive attitude while caregiving.”Crystal, Navy Spouse
