to weary long-term caregivers
News & Announcements
There's a new respite voucher program for caregivers in the Pacific Northwest! Caregivers in this region who do 40 hours a week heavy-duty care for a disabled family member-- check it out-- it might help YOU get to YOUR Vancouver Island getaway for a week!
Join us for an evening of Jazz, Poetry + Fundraising. Featuring actress & jazz chanteuse Molly Ringwald, former US poet laureate Robert Pinsky, and world-touring jazz pianist Laurence Hobgood.
Encore.org has named CAREGIFTED Founder and Executive Director, Heather McHugh, as one of its 2013 Purpose Prize Fellows. The award recognizes Heather's second act career to bring attention to the undersung contributions of long-term caregivers by providing them with all-expense-paid getaways. By supporting CAREGIFTED with the funds from her 2009 McArthur "Genius" Grant for Poetry, McHugh spends her time running the organization, raising money and acting as concierge on some caregiver gifted getaways.
