AMERICUS, GA (October 31, 2022) – The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers (RCI) will continue to support military and veteran caregivers with the support of a grant from Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The grant will support Operation Family Caregiver, a one-on-one coaching program to caregivers of service members and veterans from all service eras, and Operation Caregiver Support, a virtual support group for post-9/11 injured service members, veterans, and their families.
“Wounded Warrior Project has been a strong partner and we are thrilled to continue to work together,” said Dr. Jennifer Olsen, chief executive officer of RCI. “They recognize the need to offer flexible and accessible programming for caregivers. While working together, we can improve the lives of military caregivers and their families.”
In November 2020, WWP helped RCI launch Operation Caregiver Support to create a community of support for military and veteran caregivers in a virtual setting. The program has now grown to offer specialty groups for Spanish speakers and parents who are caregivers to wounded warriors.
