About Us

One out of three young people in America provide unpaid care to an adult friend or relative—while pursuing educational goals, career advancement, relationships, and social connections. Another third of Millennials, ages 18-39, believe they will be providing this kind of support in the next five years. Have you thought about what that may be like? Do YOU give a care?

This effort led by The SCAN Foundation strives to recast the “me-first” Millennial image with the more accurate role that more than 10 million Millennials are playing in their families. We are creating a community of Millennials and Gen Xers who are empowered by knowledge and taking on the responsibility of caring for a loved one. Please join our movement to show your support, become informed, and share your story.
