The Organization

CHARITABLE STATUS

 

ShareTheCaregiving™ Inc. (STCG) is a not-for-profit organization and is registered with New York State, Department of Law, Charities Bureau.

On July 1, 2008 ShareTheCaregiving™, Inc. put its 501c3 into hibernation in order to go under the fiscal umbrella (501c3) of the National Center for Civic Innovation (aka The Fund for the City of New York.) NCCI provides us with needed fiscal and administrative management services so we can better focus on our mission.

ShareTheCaregiving Inc.(STCG) is also widely referred to as Share The Care™(STC)

 

 OUR MISSION

 

To improve the “quality of life” of anyone
who needs support–and to reduce the stress,
depression, isolation and economic hardship
of their caregivers.

 

OUR FOCUS IS EDUCATION

Caregiving will touch everyone at some point in life yet it often remains in the shadows of the public/media spotlight because it does not make for a picture that melts the heart but rather one to be avoided at all costs. Not so much because people are uncaring but rather frightened and uneducated.

Sometimes, friends disappear when illness strikes because they don’t know “what to do or what to say.”

And often the person needing support and their caregiver hide the fact and carry the entire burden alone rather than admit they could use help.

STC’s focus is on educating caregivers, patients and their concerned friends, neighbors, co-workers and acquaintances about the profound personal benefits to everyone involved through sharing the care.

Because we find that family caregivers often tend to be isolated and therefore less likely to reach out for help, we target professionals, and faith communities. They see caregivers and patients on a daily basis and are best situated to identify those who could benefit from a STC group. We also seek to reach working caregivers through corporations.
