The CAregiver REsearch Project
San Francisco/Bay Area

The ‘CARE’ in CARE Project stands for Caregiver Research. Training began in 2012 and participatory collection and analysis continues today. The project’s primary goal is to collect the stories of caregivers in our community to understand what they are going through. The CARE Project trains caregivers and other community members on conducting research about their work conditions and their lives. During this training, CARE researchers also go through leadership development to gain the tools necessary to address the issues that emerge from the research.
