ACAPcommunity Board of Directors

The ACAPcommunity Board of Directors is made up of extraordinary people who are passionate about ensuring adult-children and other caregivers of older adult loved ones have meaningful educational and emotional support.  Not only do our Board members understand ACAP’s value, most have been, or currently are, a caregiver for a parent, sibling, or other loved one.  They know first-hand the joys and challenges of the caregiver journey.  Representing diverse backgrounds, their individually unique backgrounds and skillsets unite into a strong and dedicated group of individuals committed to achieving ACAP’s mission and vision.
