About Caregivers Support Services
Caregiver Support Services (CSS) is a non-profit organization with a 501(c) (3) tax exempt status. CSS was founded in 1997 by Terrence and Eboni Green, a husband and wife team, after the couple recognized that most individuals who provide care for a loved one or client do not know where to start when it comes to gathering and coordinating resources and services. Now in its 23rd year CSS has transformed a predominately grassroots regional supporter of caregivers into a nationally known non-profit with an entrepreneurial spirit. Our expertise is leveraging partnerships with national and international organizations to build engaging and innovative solutions for caregivers.
Caregiver Support Services is pleased to offer Caregiver Forums, an online community for caregivers and healthcare professionals as they balance work and life challenges unique to them. Caregiver Forums is a place where caregivers can network and connect with other caregivers and ask for help, guidance, or resources and relevant solutions to help them in their daily caregiving roles.
