As we celebrate this season of giving thanks, I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for your belief in our mission and your recognition of the herculean efforts of our community’s family caregivers. Even if you are not presently a caregiver, chances are you know one or more of the estimated 44 million caregivers nationwide assisting loved ones.

SCRC works to provide personalized and comprehensive support – from pairing caregivers with specialized clinicians and educators to answer questions, to providing counseling, respite services and more. Our free services reduce the stress and exhaustion caregivers experience, enabling them to provide a higher quality of care for their loved ones to live happier, healthier lives at home.

You can help ensure San Diego County families do not have to face one of the most emotionally and financially demanding times of their lives alone. Your generous contribution provides local families with:

  • $100 ($9/month) specialized training on illnesses, behavior management, and self-care
  • $250 ($21/month) one day of in-home respite care (temporary relief from caregiving)
  • $600 ($50/month) six personalized counseling sessions
  • $1,000 ($84/month) comprehensive assessment, individualized care plan and consultation

Your donation to SCRC is extending a loving hand to family caregivers who give all they can to those who can no longer care for themselves. Please know that we are incredibly grateful for your generosity and the immediate difference your kindness makes.

Together we can continue to care for those who care for others.

Thank you.


Roberto Velasquez
Executive Director
