The Working Caregiver Initiative is in the News! Here is an article written by Pamela A. Zinkosky talks about WCI and our goals, detailing the great work that has been done so far since our founding. Check it out!

Jeana Ray is a caregiver in more ways than one. She cares for her three kids and husband, she works as a caregiver for a home care company, and she cares for her elderly mother, who last year moved in to her Warren home.

The situation may sound familiar. According to Working Caregiver Initiative (WCI), a Birmingham nonprofit business founded in 2008 to provide support, education and training for working caregivers, at least 60percent of American workers can be labeled working caregivers.

"A working caregiver is anyone that has to work a job and provide care (to a parent, other relative or friend) at the same time," said Bert Copple, WCI's founder.

WCI's goal is to "create a culture of proactive caregiving in a reactive world," Copple said. WCI has atoll-free number for caregivers to call with questions and a robust Website that includes helpful checklists like the top 10 signs of quality in adult day care programs, links to community resources, videos on caregiving and other resources.
