Family Caregivers Need Your Help!

Here in Georgia, over 1.3 million people serve as caregivers every day. Yet reports say 48% of family caregivers who have to take time off to meet their care responsibilities lose income. Nationwide, 23% of workers have lost a job or have been threatened with job loss for taking time to care for a personal or family illness.

Family caregivers shouldn't have to worry about losing their pay – or losing their jobs – when they have to take time to ensure a loved one receives the care they need.

Send your elected officials a letter right now in support of SB 201, the Family Care Act, which would allow employees to use their earned sick leave to care for loved ones in need.
