The Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance has five primary goals:
1. Increase Outreach and Awareness
Through purposeful outreach, the Alliance will raise awareness about the breadth of caregiving and family support needs in our state to improve understanding and acceptance and identify solutions.
2. Promote Policy and Advocacy Efforts
The Alliance will inform public policy and engage in dialogue with policymakers and state agencies to advance solutions that result in the implementation of new, effective strategies.
3. Improve Systems Navigation and Access
The Alliance will consult with a diverse group of families, caregivers and professionals to identify gaps in resources and service provision with the goal of leading to concrete improvement in access to essential supports, information and resources.
4. Expand Family and Caregiver Support
The Alliance will expand the availability of support for families and caregivers, in part by advancing collaboration and communication between aging and disability systems.
5. Strengthen Community Support
Members of the Alliance will work in communities to promote a better understanding of local challenges that prevent families from accessing quality care from paid and unpaid caregivers and to promote the societal value of supporting caregivers.
