A platform connecting marginalized millennial family caregivers to information, resources, and each other.
A message from our founder, Aisha Adkins:
The global COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent devastating effect on older adults and Black folx has turned many families upside down. Adding to this devastation is the on-going systemic racism that continues to account for the biases and inequities that cause Black people to be killed at the hands of the police and vigilante members of the community.
These mountainous obstacles, combined with an impending economic recession, mean a sharpened focus for Our Turn 2 Care. Black millennial caregivers need information, resources, and each other now more than ever.
While the goal is to create space for as diverse groups as possible, we are scaling to focus on Black millennial caregivers (at the intersections of all faiths, orientations, and identities) before expanding to serve other groups.
As an organization, we need all of the help we can get. Our short-term goal is to provide online support groups and to become an official 501(c)(3) at the lowest possible cost.
Anyone with knowledge in either of these areas and a desire to volunteer a moment of your time is encouraged to reach out! We invite you to join us in helping create lasting, systemic change for caregivers who need it most.
