Operation Family Caregiver

Operation Family Caregiver

Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) is a free and confidential program for adult family members or friends caring for a military service member or post-9/11 veteran with visible or invisible (post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain) injuries or adjustment concerns. One of our coaches meets 1:1 with the same caregiver in a place of the caregiver’s choosing (including via Skype and/or phone when not near us or that’s what a caregiver prefers). The program is evidence-based with statistically significant improvements of caregiver depression and health status, as well as reduction of children’s anxiety. Our coach meets with the caregiver four times over 4 – 6 months to support positive solutions to problems the caregiver identifies. In between each meeting a phone calls is made to the caregiver. The emphasis is on the FOCUS acronym, which expands to: Facts, Optimism, Creativity, Understanding, and Solve. OFC is not psychotherapy, though coaches may help clients identify concerns they can share with their therapists.

Up With America is a non-partisan organization created to find common sense solutions for a troubled America. The group has identified some two dozen major problems with our nation today and placed them loosely in three categories: Our Society/Culture; Our Government; Our Economy. A growing network of concerned independent citizens, we are prioritizing each into a series of Smart Solutions for a New America and then promoting them from the grass roots to the halls of Congress. Our society, our government and our economy are all at the breaking point, so we have established 2026 – America’s 250th Birthday – as the year we must have reached our goals. Our top priority in 2014 is to introduce and pass legislation that will permanently prohibit Congress or any Federal Agency from reducing benefits for any and all service men and women.
