Thank you for your interest in employment at Family Caregiver Alliance. We are currently hiring for the following positions:


Community Engagement Specialist

Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA) is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for caregivers and the people who receive their care.  

With families providing 80 percent of long-term care in this country, the need for caregiving information is great.  An estimated 44 million Americans provide unpaid assistance and support to older people and adults with disabilities who live in the community.  For more than 40 years, FCA has supported these caregivers through education, direct services, advocacy, and research.

Our team is currently working remotely, by 2-way video conference, phone and via our online platform (CareNav). We actively seek out innovative solutions to address caregiver challenges and engage in the use of technology to expand our reach. In-person work in the community will be required once the Shelter In Place orders are lifted.

FCA’s office is located in San Francisco (nearby the Montgomery BART station)
